Wacky Web Week

With the Grand Départ, the 2014 Tour de France was launched this past weekend — from Yorkshire England. In anticipation of the event, a Yorkshire man compiled some advice for the cyclists.

The video explains to Tour de France riders proper costuming for the Yorkshire stages. Among the many admonitions: No bright colors! (They scare the sheep.) This friendly advisor also offers a preview of Yorkshire hospitality and a view of the county and its people. After viewing this video, we’re sure you’ll feel prepared for a visit — whether you ride your bike fast or slow. Click below or go to the original YouTube video.
