East Busk Lane, Mural of a Cyclist in Celebration of the Tour de France, 20145th July 2014. Image shows a large mural of a cyclist painted on the exterior wall of the former Summercross public house in East Busk Lane. The mural, painted to celebrate the 'Grand Depart' of the Tour de France, 2014, has a background of yellow polka dots and was designed by local artist and teacher at Prince Henry's Grammar School, Shane Green. He carried out most of the work during the night before the Grand Depart, assisted by his friend and keen cyclist, Steve Bottomley.
