Express & Echo Suggest Outside Red Lion Ideal Spot to Watch Tour Of Britain

Today’s Express & Echo newspaper reports on the “Best places to watch the Tour of Britain in Devon”.  It says that “The Westcountry will host the 10th anniversary of the Tour of Britain tomorrow when the country’s biggest cycling event arrives in Devon. But where are the best places to see likes of Olympic hero Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish as they make their way along the tough 85-mile (137km) route?”.

Following the cycle race from the stage start on 20 September in Sidmouth and onwards through Sidford & on through Sidbury, before climbing on to Honiton, the article suggests that the second best place to watch the race from is – “Outside the Red Lion pub in Sidbury: The picturesque village is an ideal spot to stop for a pint as the race passes”. Don’t forget to get along to this recommended spot as the cyclists wizz through Sidbury on this tough stage of the Tour of Britain race.
