Anyone fancy joining me for this hilly metric century ride from Todmorden with a stop at the Grains Bar KoM? (At my usual slow/steady pace!)Hmm... I have just noticed that there is a KOM at Grains Bar between Delph and Shaw on Stage 8. That is somewhere that I occasionally cycle to so if the weather is okay I'll ride up there and take a few photos of the peloton, then carry on to make a decent hilly loop of it.
On hilly routes like that these days in chatty company, an overall average speed including stops of about 13 kph (8 mph), sometimes less.Out of curiosity, what is your usual slow/steady pace ?
That should be a good vantage point!Going to the finish at Burton Dassett on stage 7. They have a TOB "village" there, if it was in Belgium we'd get frites and beer, think I might be lucky to get a coffee at this one. Still, will be a good place to watch and will have to stock up with supplies from the Coop before I get there.
Has Cav actually contested a sprint all year? He's turned up to a couple of races (tours of Poland and Deutschland) and arsed around a bit but that's all I can remember.Cav and Cummings riding for Dimension Data.
