The 101st edition of Le Tour de France starts in Leeds and spends two days cycling over 240 miles through the county.
Inspired by Yorkshire's wonderful landscape and history A Bicycle Ride in Yorkshire is an illustrated guide to the route of Le Tour Yorkshire, by cyclist, writer and artist Heather Dawe.
It is a guide to riding the route, to the sights and landscape seen along the way and to the rich cycling heritage found on Yorkshire's roads.
Beautifully illustrated with Heather's paintings, the route is brought to life. On the first day Le Tour departs from Leeds into the rolling scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, past the breweries of Masham to finish in the spa town of Harrogate. Day two begins in the historic city of York, from where it explores the industrial valleys of the South Pennines, skirting the Peak District before finishing in the steel city of Sheffield.
A Bicycle Ride in Yorkshire is an essential read for any cycling, Tour de France or Yorkshire aficionado.
