The Tour de France kicks off today.  But it’s a bike race much closer that home that really thrills me.  I love the hugely popular Tour de Yorkshire, a legacy of when the county hosted the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in 2014.

Yorkshire enjoyed it so much – and has such wonderful countryside to cycle around – that they pledged to continue their own mini version.  This year’s ended its second leg in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, where we spent a glorious few days earlier this year.

It may be famous for tea – it’s home to Yorkshire Tea and Taylors of Harrogate – and delicious toffee but there’s so much more to it too.  Have a look here to find out more.
