Picture perfect Grand Départ

Tilly the terrier

Yorkshire's spectacular scenery was put out to a global audience:

Red Arrows fly over Harewood House
Allez le Tour!
Thousands lined the streets

More than a few colourful characters lined the route:

A different kind of Yellow jersey
Who needs a jersey anyway?
I'll be the one in the multicoloured wig...

Tilly the terrier

Transport was an issue for some more than others:

Get off and push! Local MP Greg Mulholland gets a flat tyre
Four wheels is sometimes better than two
Going nowhere fast
Tournez a gauche

The roads were paved with....chalk:

Too steep for some
Va Va Froome
Young artists in Huddersfield

Security services were in high demand:

Heightened security in Leeds

There was some very helpful signage along the route:

And just in case there was any confusion:

No excuse for getting lost
