The Tour de France 2014 started in Leeds, England, and was heralded as 'the Grandest Depart' by Tour director Christian Prudhomme. A key component of the 'bid' for Yorkshire to host the depart was to leave behind a cycling 'legacy'. This aim was realised in May 2015 with the holding the UCI three day stage race 'The Tour de Yorkshire'
In recognition of the growing standing of Yorkshire as a great venue in the world of professional cycling we are pleased to announce that the following title is in development.
The Grandest Depart and its Legacy - Cycle rides based on the Tour de Yorkshire 2015
The book offers rides based on all three days of the 2015 Tour, with each ride having sections on-route and off-route sections. We are working hard to complete publication by the end of 2015 and looking forward already to details of the route for 2016.
