    Yay!! Day three is just down the road from me in Cambridge. I think I will persuade my wife to let me go see it with the digital SLR and try and get some good photos…

    Swaledale and right past the Dales Bike Centre. Fantastic as Stu put some serious work into helping the bid. Since the announcement the walls inside the cafe have been painted Yellow, green and red peas.

    It also goes right past my house, which is nice.

    I was hoping Sutton Bank would be in, still good opportunities for 2 days viewing for me though!

    My work mate has just asked if they are going through the channel tunnel…

    Would make an epic strava segment the climb out the other side! IIRC the service tunnel is big enough to drive through so it’s not as daft as it sounds!

    My mother-in-law asked the same thing. I contemplated telling her they used pedalos for that bit but thought better of it.

    Looking like I’ll watch day one at the top of the climb just north of Buckden – easy MTB access, and day two on the aforementioned Col de Cringles.

    Now, that would make one hell of a time trail stage!

    <is already quaking at the thought of just how much marketing mileage on-one will be screwing out of the Rotherham – Sheffield finish…. >

    Langsett to Bradfield is going to be interesting. Stupidly steep & narrow roads with 180 hairpins

    Interesting that a lot of roads were recently surfaced up there aye 😉

    i don’t know what to do and am getting exctied already! Do I watch the grand depart in Leeds (probably) then have a days riding and be in harrogate for the end of stage, or do I try and pick an interesting bit (or possibly a nice bit that I ride reguarly and camp out all day?

    Likewise, day 2, I’m thinking probably top of the moor before the decent into hebden, but form there I’ve no chance of jumping on the train and getting to sheff for the finish have I?

    It passes 100 yards from my house!

    are they doing it there because the locals never leave so would never have the chance to see it?

    It goes right past a campsite/caravan site in cracoe near skipton. Threplands house farm.

    Anyone got any recommendations for a good caravan site on or close to the Yorkshire stages ?

    Got four pitches still available in my garden, prime viewing a short ride away.

    There’s one at carlecotes close to south yorks stage – you’ll probably be able to see it across the valley on the wood head from the sire

    That’s an interesting route on day 2!

    Some beautiful scenery in Gods own County, and some absolute sh!t holes to pass through, I wonder how many of their bikes will get knicked in Keighley??

    Looks like some nice short sharp climbs in to Sheffield.

    Trout – are you going to put a bit of advertising down the road in Silsden?
