The Tour De France comes to Yorkshire

There were more cyclists than sheep in the Dale today, riding the roads which the elite cyclists will be racing along tomorrow as they set off from Leeds.  We will be watching all the action on ITV and then getting ourselves into position to watch the peleton flash past!
There is bunting in every village and lots of creative decorations, as well as yellow bicycles.  In Reeth there are crash barriers on the green.
Loos and catering trailers are dotted all over and there have never been so many tents and camper vans in the Dale before. 
We are very excited to be here to experience the Tour de France- Le Grand Depart in Yorkshire.  Keeping fingers crossed for the weather but the forecast looks good.
