Look North: Tandem ride of Tour de France Yorkshire route

Look North Yorkshire presenters Harry Gration and Amy Garcia are pedalling hundreds of miles along the route of Yorkshire's Tour de France Grand Depart.

The two presenters are raising cash for BBC Sport Relief and have been greeted enthusiastically by viewers and supporters along the route in the Yorkshire Dales.

They have already collected almost £10,000 for the charity and with four days to go before the finish line in Sheffield the team is hoping to boost that figure.
