Anatomy of Tour de France costs
The Tour has moved on and there's no doubt the crowds turned out in huge numbers - but what is the legacy of the Tour De France 2014 for England and, in these austere times, who paid for it and how?
It's certainly not straight forward trying to find out the real costs behind the Tour as everyone pays different amounts.
The Tour is run by a commercial operation the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), which charges a staging fee to the towns and cities wanting the start and finish of each stage.
That fee varies depending on how big the stage is. So, you pay more for the Grand Depart (the start) and less for the end of a stage. Well that's the theory.
For example, York City Council paid £500,000 to host the start of Day Two, with operating costs including toilets and barriers on top of that.
Quietways and the long road to change for cyclists
So far we have not seen big changes for cyclists, but in the next few months we might start to. It is hoped that it will all begin at Vauxhall with segregated lanes and junctions.
Away from the main roads, London's Cycling Commissioner Andrew Gilligan has also been working on "quietways", which will be on side streets with less traffic.
Heathrow airport's new Terminal 2 opens to passengers
This opening is really a huge exercise in expectation management, and the team here has been constantly saying there will be the odd glitch.
That's not surprising considering that the opening of T5 was an absolute debacle, with lost luggage and delays.
The English cities which breach air pollution safety guidelines
In London we have had walls planted with shrubs to try and catch pollution and trucks working late at night using "dust suppressants" to wash away the tiny airborne particles that contribute to poor air quality.
We have a congestion charge zone and a low emission zone but still air quality in London is among the worst in Europe and a big contributor to thousands of premature deaths. And London faces huge fines from Europe if it doesn't clean up its act.
Are we likely to see more Tube strikes?
So in the end the second tranche of Tube strikes were suspended, much to the relief of commuters.
The RMT union managed to get in black and white that all members who are relocated or who have their roles changed will keep the same pay.
Tube strike on despite RMT and LU coming close to a deal
On Friday both sides in the Tube dispute looked drained and exhausted after eight hours of intense talks.
Whispers of a deal had been emerging and both sides admit they weren't far off a deal in the row over ticket offices.
Tube strike to go ahead with no further talks planned
Both sides looked drained and exhausted after eight hours of intense talks.
Whispers of a deal had been emerging and both sides admit they weren't far off. At 18:15 the talks dramatically collapsed.
Tube strike: Disruption continues as strike ends
The problem is these timescales are very, very, tight so there's only Friday realistically to sort this out because we've got the Bank Holiday on Monday.
It all depends on how much each side is wedded to their positions.
Why are we on the verge of another Tube strike?
Camden's 'lack of urgency' over improving fatal junction
This week there will be a number of inquests into the cyclists who died during that grim fortnight last year.
Today it was the inquest of the well-known architect Francis Golding whose family had to sit through the detail.
