On a last minute whim I decided to attend the second stage of Le Tour de Yorkshire. This went from Selby to York in an anti-clockwise circuit with an 18km mini circuit lapped 3 times just on the eastern side of York (and, even better, right on NCN66). After detraining at York station I followed a path leading from the car park adjacent to Platform 4 right onto the river bank. This is usually a very quick, safe way of reaching NCN65 - the route to Selby and Hull and also a link to NCN66 over the Millenium bridge. On Saturday, however, there was obviously a rowing regatta and the route was seriously obstructed by boats, boat trailers, oarspersons, and spectators. Eventually I got past and then had to cross the route of the race - not a problem on foot or with a bike. 10km or so of riding got me to my chosen vantage point in the village of Murton and I was pleased to see the local populace occupying the sides of the road. There were seats, picnic tables and flags as well as several chalked "GO WIGGO" on the road.
