Ratings and Reviews
Great new version
Great update to the original. Nice to see original Grand Depart routes archived alongside the new TDY ones. Vids look good too.
Great app for cyclists up for a challenge!
As a keen cyclist and a big fan of the tour, this is a great app for those of us not greatly familiar with the area but wanting to get out and about on the actual route. The videos are great, and the route is shown in fill, apart from the Sheffield section which, as the app says, was not published in full at the time the app went on sale - hopefully this will be updated when it is? Found the reviewer who said there were loads of errors curious as I have yet to see any, and I can tell him that even I have been through Rylstone (near Grassington in the Dales). Great job guys, and bring on the tour!
Looks good but riddled with errors!
This app looks good at first glance. However, the maps and text do not accurately show the Le Tour route. For example the app shows the race taking the Addingham by-pass, which is actually going to be a massive car park! Where the heck is "Rylston" and why did the developers seemingly get bored and not finish the second stage route into Sheffield? Very disappointing...
