They've changed the route a bit since it was first announced, though the sharp left from Sidney Street into St John's Street should provide nearly as much amusement as the bridge and sharp left to the Backs would have done...

Map for those interested.

They've been to UKia before by Herring (2.00 / 0) #4 Thu Oct 24, 2013 at 08:13:36 AM EST
2008 I think and before that some time in the 1990s.

If you think that's whacky, this year's Tour of Poland started in Italy.

And Plymouth in 1974 by Vulch (2.00 / 0) #7 Thu Oct 24, 2013 at 09:25:02 AM EST
They'd finished a new bit of dual carriageway and did laps up one side and back the other before it officially opened to traffic IIRC.

A while back by Herring (2.00 / 0) #9 Thu Oct 24, 2013 at 10:05:07 AM EST
someone posted some old photos on the club forum of a road race on the M25 before it was opened. Apparently it was very dull.

I once rode my bike on the unfinished M25 by gmd (2.00 / 0) #14 Sat Oct 26, 2013 at 07:13:54 PM EST
 Between J28 and J29 if I recall. It felt post-apocalyptic.
