This slideshow features pictures of the cyclists passing through the village of Ford in north Northumberland.

In this first of a series of slideshows showing pictures of the Tour of Britain in the county, we see the event passing through Ford where the schoolchildren made a smiley symbol of bikes on the schoolfield before going to join the crowds and wave the event through the village.
