Tour de France - two bites of the cherry

For the last few years there has been a campaign to get the TOUR DE FRANCE to come to Yorkshire.
As regular readers of the blog will know, this is my favourite sporting event, and I tend to spend quite a lot of July watching as much as I can of the coverage.
The campaign has been successful, and two stages of the race in 2014 will take place in Yorkshire. The routes were released a few days ago.

The ROUTE as it comes through Yorkshire is shown on this website.

It will pass along a road that I know well, through Bradfield and down through Hillsborough into Sheffield.
The following day I will get another chance to see the race, as it passes through Cambridge....
Expect some educational materials to be produced prior to the race....
