A summer of cycling09 Jul 2014
I’ve always been into bicycles, even before they were cool and Britain started winning things on them (not any more mind you thanks to the cobbles). I’ve watched the Tour de France every year since I was a kid and have fond memories of huddling round our TV with pitiful Channel 4 reception trying to pick out riders from the white noise (no chance when it was raining!).
Watching The Tour pass through Yorkshire last weekend was incredible. It was like having the World Cup come to your local park - so great to watch a major sporting event happen on the familiar roads of the Peak District and brilliant to see how the whole of Yorkshire got behind it.
