Photos: Tour de Yorkshire

Since I moved to Sheffield it’s felt that Yorkshire has been very excited by the Tour de France. This year the Grand Depart took place in Yorkshire, the first stage between Leeds and Harrogate and the second stage between York and Sheffield.

There were several places in Sheffield celebrating the day, but we went to Meadowhall to go to the Fanfest and cyclists passed by before the finish line at the nearby Motorpoint Arena. These are some photos I took of the day on my phone.

Google automatically made some of my photos into gifs, they aren’t perfect but I think it’s an interesting way to show off the photos.

Tour de Cinema: Malham Cove

To celebrate the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire there are also many cultural events happening in the county in the next few months. The Tour de Cinema is an outdoor film event with many outdoor screenings across Yorkshire and Malham Cove played host to a giant screen on Saturday 26th April.

People were encouraged to cycle to the unusual location to watch cycling themed films from The Yorkshire Film Archive. I volunteered to help at the event and it was great to see people enjoying this event in such a beautiful location. Here are some photos I took on the day.
