The Grandest Grand Depart Ever!

Saturday 5th July 2014 was a day that I had been looking forward to for a very long time. As I said in my last post, as soon as I'd heard that the Tour de France was going to start in Yorkshire, I had signed up to volunteer so that I could really experience the weekend in full.

A couple of months ago, we found out our roles for the weekend and I couldn't believe it when I was told that I would be part of the dignitary management team. This would mean that I would be part of a close knit team of 15 volunteers at the finish in Harrogate who would get to look after a range of people from the Prime Minster, MP's, French mayors and even Mark Cavendish's family! Safe to say I was pretty over the moon!

As the day finally dawned, me and the parents had decided to go out for some breakfast in town and then go for a wander to soak up some of the early atmosphere, as I wasn't starting my volunteering until midday. However before any of that, I had my uniform to put on, which had been proudly hanging in my cupboard since I'd picked it up at my training day a couple of weeks before.

1 more sleep!

In just 1 sleep (yes I still count in sleeps!), Le Tour De France will arrive in Yorkshire and I for one, could not be more excited! 

Le Tour De France is the largest annual sporting event in the world and every year it's opening stages are ridden in a different country and this year 'Le Grand Depart' is coming to Yorkshire.

Since London 2012, I've become a bit of a fan of cycling and so when it was announced that the tour was coming to my home town, I just knew I needed to be involved and so almost two years ago, I signed up to volunteer at the event (but I'll tell you all about that next time!)

I don't think anyone expected that Yorkshire (and the whole UK) would get behind the tour like it has done and it really has gone quite crazy and I for one love it!

From knitted jersey bunting (which I gave a go myself) to painted yellow bikes everywhere to all sorts of other brilliant displays, the streets, homes and businesses of the county have embraced this wonderful event, like nothing I've ever seen before.

Here are some of the amazing things that I have managed to capture in the run up to tomorrow's big day.

All sorts of jersey bunting - especially loving the knitted variety!
