WHERE TO SEE THE RACE
The Westcountry will host the 10th anniversary of the Tour of Britain tomorrow when the country's biggest cycling event arrives in Devon.
But where are the best places to see likes of Olympic hero Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish as they make their way along the tough 85-mile (137km) route?
Western Morning News reporter Adam Walmesley has ten recommendations:
1. Sidmouth sea front: There are few better places to watch than from the start line, on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
2. Outside the Red Lion pub in Sidbury: The picturesque village is an ideal spot to stop for a pint as the race passes.
3. Honiton High Street: The East Devon town has been billed as one of the region's most friendly market towns.
4. Halberton High Street: A road that was impassable less than a year ago when the famous Grand Western Canal burst its banks.
5. Tiverton Golf Club: Enjoy the cycling before playing a round of golf.
6. Pennsylvania Road/Union Road crossing, Exeter: Forget the 20mph speed limit on this straight downhill road. Blink and you'll miss it.
7. Exeter High Street: Probably the busiest spectator point on the 85-mile route, likely to create a great atmosphere.
8. Outside Powderham Castle, Kenton: Then make a trip to one of England's oldest family homes.
9. Moretonhampstead town centre: The ancient settlement is notable for having the longest one-word name of any place in the whole of England.
10. Haytor, Dartmoor: The popular tourist spot is also where the race ends. Get ready to cheer the cyclists to the line after an exhausting ride.
