After the Tour de France came to Yorkshire in 2014 it showed the world that we were cycling mad and as such we were awarded our own race: The Tour de Yorkshire!
Ok, it should be called the Tour Of Yorkshire but it’s all promoted by ASO so we can forget that!
Stage 1 & 2 were very local, less that a 45 minute drive so despite all my mates cancelling on my I decided to go along anyway. It was a bit cold to take loads of photos but I had my new toy, a Garmin Virb, so I made these two videos:
Yes, they are boring, but I enjoyed making them!
In Scarborough as I was cycling home we were released into the race as the back markers were coming home to the cheers of the crowd and in front of a police escort! No doubt this will be my closest experience of riding in a race haha.
Roll on Le Tour and of course the 2016 Tour De Yorkshire.
