Tour of Britain Stage 6
« on: September 07, 2008, 11:15:09 pm »
I read in this week's Cycling Weekly (p50), that the best place to watch Stage six (Darlington to Newcastle Gateshead) is the Humber Bridge or the finish in Gateshead.  ??? ??? ???

The Humber Bridge is crossing the Tyne for the occasion.  Didn't you hear?

I'm planning to watch the climb at Maiden Law, then dart over to Gateshead for the finish.

It may mean that the Humber Bridge actually ends up going somewhere more interesting than Scunny! ;D

Ah - and it tells us of the 360 degree bend at Tower Hill.  Amazing I ever saw them back along the Embankment ::-)

It's a Tyneside plot to nick everything on Humberside worth having - first Get Carter, then the bridge.  Soon there'll be no reason to visit the place at all...

Just been past the racecourse in Worcester. They have no chance of starting from there on Wednesday it is under 3 foot of water.

Has anywhere been stated as an alternative?

There are a few good photos of people using Worcester Racecourse for rowing:-
