A selection of photos from my own day on the route of Le Grand Depart in the Yorkshire Dales, just outside a village called Threshfield near Grassington.
It was amazing! Organisation was slick but low key. Policing was minimal and there were no muppets driving the wrong way on roads temporarily designated one-way ! A real feel good factor reigned throughout and I felt very proud to call Yorkshire home.
As you see, we were right on the verge of a narrow country road. The cyclists were silent as they passed except for a whoosh of air and multitude of tires on tarmac.
TV Screen set up in a field to watch the rest of the race
