I cant help feeling something is broken with our weather. Its a few days before British Summertime starts and its snowing across the country. Today I decided that I wasn’t going to go to the Maidenhead & District TT on the Drift Road, as its to likely that I will get stuck there! And tomorrow doesn’t look much better either.
It seems a long way away from the start of the Tour Series, but actually its only about 8 weeks away, and on Thursday the host’s were announced. I was surprised by some of the locations, Aylsham in particular, but there are a lot of old favourites (and some not so favourites) included in the calendar too. Additionally I’m quite glad that some towns have missed out this year, after poor organisation last year – no names.
I hope to be at Woking, Colchester, Redditch, maybe Canary Wharf and Torquay too. I would love a few more stages ‘down sarf’ but have to live with what there is.
I am still waiting to see which venues will also host a round of the Johnson Health Tech GP, hopefully all those I am intending to go to
The stages for the ToB were also announced on Thursday, with a Surrey stage included again. I really hope the stage isn’t as busy as last year, but I guess the cobble finish in Guildford will be a huge draw for spectators. A hill top finish at Hay Tor is also included in this years Tour, which is guaranteed to get the crowds out.
Well hopefully the next few weeks will be a little warmer, and I can actually take some photo’s with blue sky’s in them.
Stay safe and keep it rubber side down all.
