on yer bike

I am a huge fan of the Tour de France and try to watch the highlights every evening. As the chief executive of security firm G4S prepares to go before MPs later to explain why his company was unable to provide the thousand and thousands of Olympics security staff it promised, I can't help but wonder how it is that the tour manages to get bay with - as far as I can tell and tack scattered roads notwithstanding - the tour seems to get by with what looks like no security at all on the roads.

I know about the tragedy of Munich, but what are all the Olympic staff actually for? What is it they actually do?
