Cycling Tour de Yorkshire

Friday. A call from Kristo: “Do you want to go cycle the 2nd stage of the Tour de France on Sunday?”

Sunday morning. Wake up in Wakefield, eat a big English breakfast, jump on a bike.

Finish over 6 hours later in Sheffield having cycled a big part of the stage route including and 2nd category climb Holme Moss, being cheered on by the gathering crowds. Plus we got to see winner at the finishing line and I jumped into the slipstream of Cannondale’s Fabio Sabatini and managed to stay there for 300 meters. Until he stopped at his team bus :)

What a brilliant proper Tour de France atmosphere! Now I definitely have to join Kristo next year at the L’Etape du Tour.

Next time I’ll actually get some training miles in before doing this.

One comment - got something to add??

    I’m dissapointed. I was mostly hoping to read about the double bed experience…
