Incredible! Beautiful! Brutal!. Giro d'Italia 2011 stage by stage analysis.May 7-28. Live on Eurosport. Highlights and limited Live stages on SBS......and.....Flowery Gully ride

The first of cycling's three grand tours, the Giro d'Italia, gets underway this month. Tune in to SBS for daily highlights at 6pm on SBS TWO from Sunday 8 May plus catch four live stages including Stage 9, Stage 14, Stage 20 and Stage 21 also on SBS TWO and streamed LIVE at Cycling Central.

Yesterday i went on one of my favourite local rides out through Exeter, Winkleigh and Flowery Gully.
I am ashamed to say that i still avoiding the big climb over Flowery Gully. However yesterday i did all but and it is still a challenging ride with plenty of rolling hills and dead roads. Aiming to take on the full loop in next week or two. Gravelly Beach-Batman Bridge-Beaconsfield-Flowery Gully/Winkleigh-Exeter-Home.(47km hilly). A quiet, but very challenging and scenic country ride. 
The full loop is best done on the weekend when the log truck traffic is minimal.
