The countdown for the Tour de France Yorkshire 2014 is on so we decided to create our own Gorgeous Guide to Le Tour Yorkshire and ask why everyone should be getting excited about it now!
I must admit I’m not (or should say wasn’t) an avid watcher of road cycling until the final few stages or Le Tour last year when it was clear Bradley Wiggins was going to win ( I know – glory hunter!) But given Bradley’s engaging personality and the sheer drama of the Olympics I have to say I’m starting to understand the hype.
Le Tour Yorkshire is going to be huge! No doubts about that with Welcome to Yorkshire on the case as well. Apart from The Tour de France being one of the biggest sporting events in the world, it is coming to Yorkshire and thats almost bigger (ok, confessing to abit of Yorkshire hype there!). That is something pretty special in itself. It will be a thrill to see our beautiful cities and epic landscapes on the small screen next summer, being watched by millions of people across the globe. What an amazing opportunity to showcase Yorkshire to the world! Got to say well done Gary Verity and the Welcome to Yorkshire team for a phenomenal campaign….
We have prepared a full outline on the where, when, how to see the great event in our Gorgeous Guide to Le Tour Yorkshire . Hope it inspires you come and take a look – it will be worth it!
NB There is still some accommodation availability so for a quick check on which ones, where check out our cottage availability.
