Everyone loves “free” and these Paul Smith posters are just that, FREE.

The third, bright blue poster accompanies the final stage in the Tour’s visit to the UK, on Monday 7th July, when the peloton will race 155km from Cambridge to London ending on The Mall. After which the Tour will continue in France.
