did anybody video where The Ridge becomes Ridge Road ? I ask as the support cars were doing re-enactments from the films Fast and Furious and it scared a number of bystanders with the speed and overtaking of each other they were doing. Yes, i have written to the organisers..

What a brilliant atmosphere in and around Marple for the Tour of Britain. Massive crowds all cheering and enjoying the spectacle of the race in gorgeous sunshine. It couldn’t have been any better.

The big day is here and the Tour of Britain will hit Marple at lunchtime today.



The Tour should pass through High Lane, Marple and Werneth Low between approximately 11.45am and 12.16pm.

For the central location of Hibbert Lane the timing is approx 11.58am to 12.08pm.

I'm also advised that when they pass if you blink you'll miss it!

Anyway, below is the full timetable as a pdf plus a couple of snapshots of the local section timings.

I expect the riders will be through Marple a good deal quicker than Marple Carnival and will thus cause less disruption and the periods during which roads are closed will be less.
Thats what i said .

Do we know where and when the road closures will be? Is there a list available?

Marple Exile has said  "However, Stockport is a traffic nightmare at the best of times, and the route takes it across some of the main roads in and out of the area, so even relatively short closures will have a big traffic impact. However I suspect the closure of a main road crossing will be relatively short and it is only one day.  I occasionally travel on the A1 - other roads will be similar - when traffic waiting to cross probably waits 10 minutes or more every day until there is a suitable break in the traffic.  For the Tour the road crossings will be police controlled and they will not want to hold up the traffic for any great time.  As our area is at an early part of the race, the competitors will not be split up to any great extent and that the closure time of a "blink of an eye" may be all that is necessary.
It will be through in 12 minutes from were you are they dont hang about .
