Great public transport. The trains are on strike and the buses aren't running to the places the race actually goes. Yet another cock up by Barnsley Council!

Erm, the train strikes are Monday not Sunday according to BBC website - wtf does that have to do with the council anyway? I'd imagine the buses are cancelled between those hours as the race is using their route - or should they ride around them?
