Highlights – 2015

In a few weeks time, I hope to publish the details of the 2017 Tour de Travoy. But in the meantime, I thought I would look back and pick out the top 10 highlights from previous tours, starting with 2015. I have also included the best 10 tweets from the 2015 Tour as well. Next week, I will pick out the best bits from the 2016 Tour before publishing details of the 2017 Tour de Travoy around the start of May.
