Hell Ride from around early December through to the start of the JCTDU is your best bet for star spotting....but you'll need to be at the pointy end!!
One summer 10-ish years ago I was riding the Hell Ride and happened to find myself at the pointy end just after Oliver's on Scott McGrory's wheel. He's riding next to Stephen Pate, talking away like it's nothing. Pate is nodding and grunting and slowly turning purple. Pate pops and starts sliding back, McGrory keeps talking until he realises there's no-one there, looks around, raises his eyebrows and keeps pedalling. I nearly choked trying to hold the laughter in.
