About 14 early birds took to the road at 8am on Sunday morning last. The whole idea of the early start was to do a recce on the new Tour of the Lakes route and get feedback from riders.
As I'm sure you are all aware, the Tour of the Lakes takes place on Sunday 17th July, 2011. Our new starting and finishing venue is The Downs GAA Club. The Committee have been very kind to allow us to use their fantastic facilities on the day.
Well, back to business. The route is 120km long so about 4+ hours in the saddle but is a very scenic one. There maybe a few small changes to the route based on feedback from riders today but Tom Carolan and myself will have high-level talks before any final decision is made. So we can’t reveal the complete route yet.
