    Cycling Weekly have picked up on the unclassified climb out of Birstwith (14% according to the road sign) on the Saturdays being a potential spoiler for the sprinters. Its that just before the 12 mile mark on this Strava gradient profile of the route from the edge of Ripon to Harrogate.

    I was there at the announcement today - part of the 'peloton' riding outside :bicycle:

    Brid to Scarborough won't be a long stage, unless they go via York
  5. Shibden Wall will be interesting

    Even Sean Kelly took to the pavements on that!

    Anyone fancy a 140 mile day ride from toon?

    Yes, but the crowds will be dramatically larger than in 1988, so they will have no choice but to ride the cobbles.

  9. Yes, which is why it will be interesting
  10. UP Ewden Heights too!!!!!!!!!
    (aka 'The Strines'/Mortimer Road)

    Not a pleasant hill, from the bridge in the bottom, over Ewden Beck

    Annoying that it goes about 10 miles from my door on stage 1 when I'll be at work. I'll be at stage 2 though, just depends whether after a 50 mile ride or a 40 minute drive!

    I'm going to miss the local parts of the final stage because I will be riding the sportive event with my cousin and then watching the finish.
