Watch: The art of cycling

The Tour de Yorkshire is a cycling race - but that's not all.

It's a spectacular celebration of Yorkshire's town, villages, countryside and people - but that's still not all.

Take a look below to see some of the amazing land art which has peppered the routes of this year's event:

Bike buffet at Emley Moor feeding station

I was at the sportive event's feeding station underneath Emley Moor mast, where entrants picked up some much-needed sustenance.  

It was quite a spread, with fruit, cakes, sweets and crisps - plenty to keep energy levels up.

The competitors made their way to Fox Valley, where they crossed the same finish line the professionals will cross later. What an experience that will be!

The route snakes its way through West and North Yorkshire before ending with a grueling circuit in Sheffield later this afternoon.

Shortly before the circuit finale, the tour will head through Penistone - with some spectators attempting to rival the professionals on distance covered.

They aren't going to be getting closer to the burger van anytime soon.
