• Bizarrely I manage to miss both the TdY and the world champs this year as am away touring for both. There’s a few nice roads between skipton and Harrogate so that could be a good shout. If you want to find out what the non-knobhead cyclists of Leeds are doing in terms of viewing, join the Fixed Gear Leeds Facebook group, am sure they’ll be planning some rides out to catch the various points of the race and we’re very welcoming/inclusive in The North.
