- TdF Grand Depart – Where will you be stood?
Somewhere near Skipton? Gonna ride up the Leeds-Liverpool – is this a good plan? Anyone want to join me and a mate [if he’s free] riding from Bradford. We’ll not be in a great hurry
Is there an ETA for Skipton?
Around 12.30 to 1.00 for the riders and Caravane about 10.50
Hoping to do Skipton too along Leeds/Liverpool but setting off from LeedsPosted 4 years ago
The canal is reserved for people trying to get to work in Skipton, please find another route, thanks. 😉WhathaveisaidnowMember
If all goes to plan, (it won’t)…
Saturday Harewood area and then at the end Harrogate or near it?
Sunday (depends how Saturday goes)
Holme Moss, if my legs can take me there?
If not, Sheffield, that Jenkin rd climb of doom!!!
Are there places in Sheffield/Leeds to lock up bikes?
I’ll be on my road bike, yellow Coppi, keep em peeled… 😀Posted 4 years ago40mpgSubscriber
Stage 4 – a 4th cat climb near Ypres whilst sipping belgian beer
Stage 5 – just after the depart as they roll right past our campsite, then a quick ride down to the 2nd last pave 15k from the finish, whilst sipping belgian beer.
Stage 6 – probably watch the depart from a bar whilst – you guessed it – sipping belgian beer

Anyone know the ‘exact’ timings that the Peloton will be passing through certain parts tomorrow?

already seen 2 RTA’s and a load of mamils binning it on the corner since they resurfaced it, im not sure if folks think this road is closed but flying down it on the wrong side? well you wouldn’t do it on any other mode of transport
its a bit of a melting pot At the mo as everyone is trying to ride the route beforehand and lots of cyclists and cars isnt mixingPosted 4 years agoGary_CMember
Just back home after spectating just along the road at the top of the ‘Col de Cray’/Kidstones. The place was absolutely jam-packed with spectators, but we found a good vantage point at the roadside a bit further along the road from the hordes.
A bloody good day out which included a 41mile mtb ride there & back.Posted 4 years agosimmySubscriber
Part of Caravan
Jens out on his own
Fantastic day. despite the gradient they were gone in no time, best part was the support vehicles stopping on the hill and the drivers not having a clue how to do a hill start. Entertainment all day long that. The smell of burning clutch was constant 😯Posted 4 years agoTiRedMember
Was sat in front of the projector for the depart, then left to race my own Tour de Fowlmead# E123, before returning for the highlights. Prudhomme will have been delighted with the crowds today. I’m sure he’ll be keen to bring the TdF back to the UK again ASAP.
#Crowds were a little smaller. I believe three is a crowd 😉Posted 4 years ago
