Tour of Britain organisers are looking for Welsh cycling fans to act as helpers on stage 3 of this year's race from Newtown to Swansea on September 13th.
The stage runs through Newtown (yeah well obviously), over Gwynant, Llandrindod Wells for the first sprint, Llangadog for the second, the Black Mountain, Gwaun Cae Gurwen for the third sprint, and then on to Swansea. If you are near those places or can be on the 13th (which is a Monday) Tour organisers would like to hear from you.
Volunteers will get a Tour of Britain goody bag and a hearty pat on the back… but that's not really the point is it? If you'd like to be a part of Britain's premier cycle race you can voluteer via the Tour of Britain website.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
