    Tour de Yorkshire

    Exciting times in sleepy Scarborough , last year saw the towns first KFC open , this year we have the first leg of the new 3 day Yorkshire bike race end here .




    Nice touch - many old bikes, festooned the race colours placed about town


    Children loved it, as did the usual army of volunteers who love working for nothing; so long as they get to wear a ninety-nine pence vest.

    To the race !
    note to self - best leave photography to the pros...







    some weird shadows ...

    Spotted a beer tent as it was closing - grrrr

    that specially brewed Theakstons
    Tour de Wot would have gone down a treat !

    Great work Blue.

    Lots of crashes on today's stage - all blamed on that pesky perpetual northern drizzle. Made for good viewing though. Some of Yorkshire's passes are Alpine-esque, real steep spiteful twats.
