Tour of Britain 2018 Photos

Today the 2018 Tour of Britain visited Warwickshire, briefly clipping the Cotswold hills too. I managed to catch the race on the steepest part of the Ilmington hill KoM – peaking out at 16% – before heading to Royal Leamington Spa to catch the finish. Below are a selection of the best photos from today’s stage.

Tour of Britain 2018 Preview – Tips, Contenders, Profile

This year’s Tour of Britain takes place between 2nd-9th September 2018 and the big draw is that Britain’s two best stage racers will be taking part.

Ned Boulting’s Bikeology Show Review

Ned Boulting has pretty much become a fixture of the Tour de France each summer having reported on it since 2003. Up there with the wordsmith Gary Imlach as seemingly ever-present on our screens throughout the month of July. He’s also taken to performing a one-man show, using the skills learnt years ago as a Cambridge Footlight. I went and paid it a visit in...

Larkstoke Hill

Cotswold Climbs 3 – Larkstoke Hill

Larkstoke Hill is found just about in Warwickshire near to the village of Ilmington. There are quite a few different routes up this hill but the climb of interest takes us to the highest point in Warwickshire. It’s a popular one to tack onto sportives to destroy legs near the finish.
