Will you do the full route or do you just escort them through your area ?

Was out in The North York Moors yesterday, through The Esk Valley to Whitby, then to Pickering & back.

Plenty of bunting & cyclists around on sections of the route.

Hi Dave
I was thinking of riding part of the route, depending on the weather of course. It's running right though my village so I shall be giving a bit of local support & then possibly heading off towards Scarborough.

Hi Chad, weather permitting, (and it's not looking too brilliant at the moment),  I'm thinking of doing all of Stage 3 from Middlesbrough to Scarborough, tomorrow, Saturday 30th, the day before the cyclists do it, hopefully that makes sense.

If I do it, (I'll decide in the morning),  I've arranged to meet some others at Suggitts in Great Ayton.

At sometime in the future, I'd like to try and do all of the Stages as ride outs.

The forecast for today (Saturday) isn't unreasonable, looks like I'll be heading out, to do the Middlesbrough to Scarborough Stage 3 Route.

Had a cracking ride out today (Saturday),  covering 185 miles.

Look forward to doing Stage 1 Beverley to Settle & Stage 2 Otley to Doncaster sometime.
