The Tour de France Grand Depart 2014

We had an amazing long weekend watching and celebrating the Tour de France when it came to England for the weekend.   We created a number of blog posts and videos in the lead up to the Tour de France and on the weekend itself. Here they all are for you to peruse at your leisure.

We began with a Tour de France lookbook to make sure our customers had some great Le Tour inspired clothing!  You can contact us to see what is still available.


We took our handbuilt Tour de France inspired yellow Pennine bike on some of the Stage 2 route before the peloton arrived.



Then the Tour de France arrived and we attended the Tour de France Team Presentation at the Leeds Arena.



The day before the Tour de France began our Managing Director Paul and VC Bradford member Tim went for a ride with the Europecar team!

Then the racing started and on Stage 1 of the Tour de France we went to watch the finish in Harrogate.



Stage 2 of the Le Tour in Yorkshire we watched from the roads of Keighley and saw the finish in Sheffield.



Finally for Stage 3 the Tour de France we went to watch the finish in London!



It was an incredible weekend for us all at Pennine Cycles and one we will never forget.  It is amazing to think the best riders in the world went riding on the streets which we go on week in and week out!  We created some fantastic memories and hope you did too.
