Splendid day out for a bit of cyclist spotting. Thank you for getting a tour to Yorkshire, who ever was involved, and I take it from the turn out that there will be one next year. Pretty please :)

Tilley liked the attention from the other spectators and wasn’t bothered by it all when the helicopters, police and cyclist zoomed past. Ruby, our foster dog – anyone wants to give him a home? – was just chilled as a cucumber, just laid in the sun and relaxed.

Here are a few from our day at the top of the hill just outside Silsden. Sun, split up peloton, leaders, great police/marshalling, sticky bottle, smiles from the riders, broom wagon etc.

As we drove back we saw bbq’s, bunting, deck chairs and happy people – a grand day out for sure.
