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 3 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 3 years agosimmySubscriber

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 3 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 3 years agocozzMember
well I had a great day
camped at nidderdale bike fest – they did a really good job for a pop up campsite
rode through the woods to ripley castle just outside harrorgate, found a spot 3 miles fro the finish, and of course they were really flying past, nearly blew my flat cap off
then once past rode on into harrogate, but solid gridlocked about 1 mile from the finish so nipped into a pub and then returned
so if you saw a fat bloke on a fat bike – it was prob me – 😀Posted 3 years agoMrSmithMember
so many morons standing in the road waving mobile phones around and not looking at the riders bearing down on them, somebody went flying in that intermediate sprint, surprised theres not more accidents.Posted 3 years ago
i’m waiting for the fat labrador incident or maybe a mobility scooter and somebody adamant the tour will not interfere with a scratch card/can of cider/chips purchase.
