The Buttertubs Pass from Hawes in North Yorkshire will be one of the first climbs taken in by the 2014 Tour de France in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. I’m not going to attempt to regale you with tales of my epic ascent of the climb as I can only remember about 25 metres of it (and I don’t think I’ve ever regaled anything very well) so I’ll stick to what I know and provide the cold, hard stats!

Velo Flow allows you to view and interact with animated Strava rides. Getting started with Velo Flow can be a little confusing but the video below walks you through how to do it step by step. The second video shows you some of the hidden features in Velo Flow explaining how to highlight multiple riders and more.
Not quite sure why I didn’t have this column in here from the start to be honest but its there now: the number of tries you’ve had on each segment, and of course you can order by it.
If you are new to VeloViewer or just want a reminder of what the Update page is all about then this is the page for you. Basically you can’t go far wrong following your nose but read on for more detailed instructions.
