    If your house is in Nottinghamshire, the Tour might come past you next year

    Someone will probably try to argue that is effectively Scotland or Wales.
    No chance - because nobody knows where Nottinghamshire is.
    I think it's where Sherwood Forest is, but that be Yorkshire x
    Sherwood was much bigger back in the day...

    Nottinghamshire is an overnight horse ride from the south coast according to Kevin Costner.

    And Hadrian's Wall is on Kev's horse's route ...
    That is quite the detour! 😱
    I was presuming multiple horses but that route is stretching things too far.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Yer, I tried to download it but such things are no longer considered important.

    Unfortunately putting up phone masts in Cornwall is also not considered important

    I have, in the past, wondering why Britain has in general avoided the oompa-Pop, salsa-pop, apres-ski pop genre that form the basis of many a nation's psyche. Today I learnt that it was never true. All this time it was just bagpipe-pop!!!

    Bagpipe pop 😂😂😂😂😂

    There is a musical genre up here known as GBX which takes it's name from Radio Clyde dj George Bowie. He's the biggest nreakfast dj in Scotland (infact per capita the most popular in UK).

    Anyway, every weekend evening he does the Scottish Annie Mac / Pete Tong 7pm pre club show and his tunes are all Euro Techno with bagpipes and screeching female vocals. It's massive.

    Someone will be along to complain that it is basically a Tour of Scotland, the Netherlands and Belgium
  • The women's one is mostly in the Midlands and South East

    I was never a good enough rider to make it into The Comic. #nextbestthing
