Oooh I'm liking the idea of a day out in Redcar. Lemon tops all round :okay:.. I await announcements of where that stage will finish.

nice balanced route / regional selection overall. A circuit or 3 of the IOW to finish sounds fun too!

Barnet,
I have already booked a hotel for a few nights on the IOW for the final day of racing.
With a bit of luck and a bit of thought, the race will hopefully come right past the hotel which is more or less at the foot of Blackgang Chine in Chale.:okay:
It's just a case of which way round the Island they will be going.

Given the traditional island "circuit" is region of 60-65m / 100 km then they will to wiggle inland and out a bit or do some repeats to get to a usual stage distance, so you should be in luck.

The IoW should make for a great stage but I hope the route makes good use of the available lumpy terrain to mix things up. Also, the potential for cross winds along the Military Rd should make for a nervous peloton.

I go over to ride around the island a couple of times a year and the organisation around bringing bikes on to the ferry (usually Southampton) can be a bit hit and miss, so I hope they’re prepared for the potential spike in cyclist numbers in the day.

The route could add some jeopardy by including the chain ferry, especially if it’s having one of its ‘days’.

I am however frustrated that they've made the men's route available (for September) but no details really whatsoever for the women's tour which is in June.

Per the website it starts in Colchester and one stage is on Oxfordshire, looks like the rest hasn't been confirmed yet. Hopefully there will be a stage our way and I'll go watch. With it being June there is a chance of being able to go a bit further to see it.

I’m guessing that the Tour de Yorkshire is now beyond any hope of a return, as stage four is in North Yorkshire and into Cleveland.

Definitely not this year but there were hopes of bringing it back mentioned in the last month or so.
