Scotland’s cycle path network is to get a £6m revamp, which will include improvements to the Land’s End to John O’Groats route.

The famous route will be upgraded from Barnton Junction to the Forth Road Bridge.

The money will also be used to create more cycle paths in Glasgow ahead of the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

Read it on BBC News website.

Way Back Home is the incredible new riding clip from Danny MacAskill, it follows him on a journey from Edinburgh back to his hometown Dunvegan, in the Isle of Skye.

Sorry this is nothing to do with the End2End cycle, but it’s so great just had to post it here!

Tour de France official website

It’s that time of year again the Tour de France is back 🙂 It’s going to be a great year with the Team Sky, doing the tour for the very first time.  If like myself you don’t have pay TV and never will do. ITV4 in the UK is showing highlights every night and for the first time even showing live stuff 🙂

ITV4 can be found on Freeview (24), Freesat (117), $ky (120) and Virgin Media (118).

Rotterdam hosts the start of one of the biggest annual sporting events of the calendar. The Prologue time trial returns after a two year absence. The short flat 8.9 km course should suit Britain’s Bradley Wiggins, but watch out for Fabian Cancellera who is the world time trial champion.
