Stage three of the Tour de France will be a sprint from Cambridge to London on 7th July.
It begins in the city centre, taking in Kings Parade, before leaving Cambridge through Trumpington.
It's a scenic route through the countryside to Saffron Walden, then it passes through villages like Finchingfield and Bannister Green near Braintree and Chelmsford - not a million miles from the homes of Team GB cyclists Ian Stannard and Alex Dowsett - before turning South West to London.
