One of the joys of living in an area of great beauty and hills is the cyclists on the local roads. The lycra clad enthusiasts are a common sight on the roads around here, particularly in the summer. This week, on Friday, the Cycle Tour of Britain 2015 visits the Amber Valley and Wirksworth. In fact our usual route, and the alternate route, to the holiday cottage from our home in Belper follows the route of the Cycle Tour.
For obvious reasons the roads will be closed to normal road traffic when the tour group passes through. Unfortunately for us the access to the cottage will be closed in Wirksworth just when we normally clean the holiday cottage prior to handover to the next guest. We'll manage somehow.
