Tour of Britain calls for Welsh stage volunteers

Calling cycling fans in Wales… want to be a part of Britain's biggest cycle race?...

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.

    Why do these self-entitled motorists think they should be blocking a pavement. Doesn't their "road tax" pay for them to block the road.
