    Stage 7 starts at the end of the road where I lived as a child. Unfortunately I'll be in Northern Ireland that day so can't engineer a visit to relatives on the same road. :sad:

    Maybe they should consider renaming it.

    This will be the second time they'll ride past my workplace (different jobs). May take the day off to paint a big penis on the tarmac up Cheddar Gorge.

    Am I being dumb? I cannot see the actual route, just a few town names per day.

    Yes. Might depend on what you are viewing in on, on an iPad there was a “click for stages” at bottom of screen. To take you to the route details

    After missing out last year we get two this year!

    I think I'll try and be on the slopes of Whinlatter for the end of stage 6 :smile:

    If I'd been choosing the route, I think I would have taken them over Honister Pass first time round though, instead of the double ascent of Whinlatter.

    Is that the bit that doesn't want to be part of Britain anymore?
