So, as it stands there are 19 days until the start of The Tour. We are just waiting on the race manual to be published and then Dad and me will spent a few hours planning our routes and programming it into the Sat Nav. Obviously we already have the hotels booked, did this the day after the official launch, so all that’s left is when our mid race viewing points will be.

As usual I will be using my website to post my views of the race (not full race reviews) and any photo’s we take along the way.

In my opinion it looks a cracking route with plenty of variety for everyone including the spectators.

The race runs from Sunday 7th September to Sunday the 14th.

STAGE 1
Liverpool

STAGE 2
Knowsley to Llandudno

STAGE 3
Newtown to The Tumble (Mountain top finish)

STAGE 4
Worcester to Bristol

STAGE 5
Exmouth to Exeter

STAGE 6
Bath to Hemel Hempstead

STAGE 7
Camberley to Brighton

STAGE 8a
Time Trial – London

STAGE 8b
Circuit race – London

As you can see they race isn’t heading further north than Liverpool and I for one am happy with this. Stage transfers are a lot shorter than previous years and the Bath to Hemel Hempstead route passes close to home. Sorry Jo, not close enough for a night at home!

You may have noticed that the dates have moved back to their original slot instead of a week later. This means that I will be celebrating my birthday on the tour. My youngest two children have only seen their Dad on this birthday once, last year. They don’t seem to be bothered as we always celebrate with birthday cake for breakfast on the day I leave! (It’s on the 10th if anyone is interested)

More soon
