On Tuesday the relay came to Lufbra, and I took the day off work to be there.
My plan was to follow the torch as closely as possible, and get a few miles in. (I followed the torch in and out of town, but went off on my own during the prolonged publicity stops)
I had hoped to start at Quorn, but Quorn to Loughborough was one of the bus bits, as was its departure to Hoton. These sections are only a couple of miles, and there are a lot of (fairly fast) people who could have taken it over these less populated stretches, so I think that opportunities may be being missed.
All said and done it was a great atmosphere, with the crowds cheering anything that moved.
