The Tour de France may not have made its way through Slingsby but that didn’t stop the celebrations with the Triangle’s Keith Buck putting on a very nice TdF themed display. Keith also sent in this nice summary of the weekend’s events:-
Morning All, Having watched all 13 hours of the live TV broadcasts of the Yorkshire stages I am ready for a rest day myself!
What a marvellous job Gary Verity did. I don’t think anybody imagined that road side spectator numbers over the two days would top 3 million. The T de F goes out to 190 countries with viewing figures of 3.9 billion. Guess we might see a few more tourists.
I think you might be right there Keith.
Over the weekend, the Slingsby Twitter feed posted some photos and links (if you haven’t already, it’s always worth checking the village Twitter page for interesting local news, photos and links etc) from Le Tour but we will link them here just in case you missed them.
