This year the Tour de France came to Yorkshire and there were lots of fun things to see around the region when the cyclists came to our county. Here are some photos taken by our roving reporter Minhaj who saw the teams as they set off from Leeds on Saturday.
Getting ready for the start
Spare cycles in case of accidents :-)
The Haribo sweet van and traffic police
The Bic pen scooter :-)
The winner of the whole race gets to wear the yellow jersey - and so did some of the statues in Leeds:
And there were yellow bicycles everywhere!
Tied to railings
On hotel balconies
Sadly there were so many thousands of people in Leeds that morning that me and Saoirse were too small to see the cyclists but we enjoyed walking round ( and getting carried) and seeing the sights.
The telephone boxes were painted with the routes through Yorkshire in the colour of the jerseys.
We met a policeman dressed as a yellow padlock!!
