Tour de Yorkshire

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.
