Young Cyclists experience the Tour de France from the road

In early July, ASO - the organisers of the Tour de France - arranged for young riders from across the country to ride the first and last 30 kilometres of the Tour de France in Briton ahead of the elite riders.

The riders on the Yorkshire route all came through the Go Ride programmes in the area.

The young riders felt like celebrities as they rode through the crowds and soaked up the atmosphere. Their advice for anyone who wants to experience the thrill of road cycling? Find a Go Ride programme near you.
