Yorkshire Tour de France

Yorkshire Tour de France

Just been out on the route for a few hours, getting really giddy about the tour arriving now.  It is going to show off Yorkshire to the world and make me even more proud and happy to live here. 

The first stage will start from Leeds Town Hall on Saturday 5th July 2014 and pass through 190 km (120 miles) of gorgeous North Yorkshire countryside, including the splendid Pennine section of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, before reaching Harrogate, where the first Yellow Jersey of the Tour de France 2014 will be awarded.

On the second day, riders will leave the historic city of York for Sheffield on a very tricky 200-km (125 miles) stage whose final section, especially with the formidable Holme Moss to climb, will resemble a short Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
