Tour of Britain – stage 7, Surrey
Was watching son play footie so missed the actual event this year (was at Barhatch last year). Highlights last night were disappointing. OK tree cover doesn’t help but nothing of my normal road hautns (eg Barhatch, Leith, Pitch Hill and around Hankley) but a lot of the A31!!!!!
Still great finish and must have been exiting cG to have watched that live. The aerial shots of the peloton blasting blast the Harvester at Puttenham were impressive.Posted 4 years agosingletrackmindMember
I rode up from Hindhead on the road bike. Had to have a word ( rant ) at a blithering idiot who overtok on the blind left hand corner just after the Good Intent at Puttenham. Caught him at the junction and put my point across , without swearing .Posted 4 years ago
Rode up over the Hogs Back and watched on the short sharp climb out of Warnborough.
Great atmosphere with a big crowd , saw myself on the tele too.
Then rode around for 30 mins , and had my arse properly handed to me by a girl from Wyndy Millars race team . Then back up to the A31 Hogs Back exit where I watched the break from the outside of the corner ( saw myself on the tele again ) , and the peleton from the inside apex , so about 1m away.
Found some Oakleys so had a right result , then met a rider in Elstead and rode back to the car part way with him.
Was a great atmosphere , with people waiting cheering and shouting ‘Allez’ at me as I rode the wrong way up the route , about an hour before the race was due.J-RMember
Saw them at Ranmore, then Newlands and finally in Guildford Hight Street. Then SS’d home along the NDW with Mrs R.
A great day, although you’ve got to get a good spot to see anything at Guildford. I hope they come through Surrey again next year – perhaps I’ll go to Barhatch next time.Posted 4 years ago
