  1. Just a “heads up” The date you have for the Tour de Lopez is wrong. It’s posted as the 25th of April, but that’s a Tuesday. The Official site has it on the Saturday the 23rd.

    Glad all of this in one place. Thanks for your time and energy.

    1. Thanks, Jack. Those were all dates for 2015. Everything is up to date now.
