    Have just read in Bike Biz that the TdeF brought in an estimated £120 million profit for London.

    Wonder what the Olympics will do.........

    It's the additional profits made by business in the capital as a direct result of the tour.

    Somewhere I have the amount spent by TFL on the event. I'll dig it out.

    Read similar myself, I think old Ken only had to shell out about £8M for it.

    Some return eh?!

    I have a teensy weensy feeling the Olympics may not be as profitable as the TdeF!
