were people come down each day, groups of cyclists and non`cyclists

:19:32.:19:36.

and people are coming from abroad to say they have ridden stages one and

:19:37.:19:41.

two in God's country. You whll all now be cycling home? It is good to

Harewood House saw the start of the Grand Depart. I keep pinching

myself, because I have got what I think is the best seat in the house:

Akoord:. What better advert than Wharfdale? All along the route,

:21:20.:21:31.

West Tanfield laid on such a spread, some Royal visitors dropped in.

:21:32.:21:43.

And in Harrogate, crowds flocked to the finish. That was just a taste of

:22:12.:22:17.

Let's be honest, it isn't grim, just grand up north. The field art isn't

:22:18.:22:23.

bad either. There are two big climbs on this

:22:24.:22:30.

stage. Let's start with if longest, crag Vale clocks in at around five

miles. That's just the Bunting. No miles. That's just the Bunting. No

of wow. It may not be the Pxrenees, but still, I'm glad I flew it, not

:22:57.:23:00.

but still, I'm glad I flew ht, not cycled it. Apparently there is a

tennis tournament down south and a football tournament somewhere else

:23:07.:23:09.

in the world, they want to borrow the crowds. Bidding Bonjour to

:23:10.:23:14.

Derbyshire, it was down and up again over the Woodhe.

:23:15.:23:22.

Will they ever see a day like this again? Finally to Sheffield where

:23:23.:23:27.

tired legs meet the steel chty and one of the toughest climbs of the

:23:28.:23:31.

whole stage `` Woodhead. From the first turn of the wheel to the last

from the air. But what was it like on the ground and in the middle of

:23:47.:23:50.

the crowd, Amy? For the first time ever on the Tour de France, there

:23:51.:23:54.

was an army of volunteers known as tour makers along the 250 mile

:23:55.:24:00.

route. Some join us now. George airport you were at the top, what

:24:01.:24:04.

was it like? Absolutely inspiring. The crowds were fantastic, the

:24:05.:24:08.

police were fantastic, the Security Services were superb. But the main

:24:09.:24:13.

thing, Yorkshire, Yorkshire, God's country.

:24:14.:24:17.

Let me just ask you, Bernard, if I may, what were the main problems

tandem. It's the first time we have done this since Sport Relief four

:25:47.:25:50.

months ago. We thought this would be the perfect opportunity to have

another go and when we did Sport Relief, the crowds were just

:25:55.:25:58.

fantastic, but this, wow, this was really something special. This is my

Keighley of course, no bettdr place than that! Your forecast this

than that! Your forecast thhs weekend was scarily accurate. One

:30:37.:30:44.

weekend was scarily accuratd. One went over Holme Moss, 20 minutes

:30:45.:30:50.

after the bikes went through, a shower. Look at this from Emley

:30:51.:30:55.

shower. Look at this from Elley Moore, thank you for that Emily.

:30:56.:30:57.

Moore, thank you for that Elily And look at this one in Silsden.

:30:58.:31:03.

And look at this one in Silsden This one's very arty, two

:31:04.:31:09.

helicopters silhouetted agahnst the blue sky and clouds at Woodhead.

:31:10.:31:14.

There are some of you cycling nuts that are heading down for the next

:31:15.:31:18.

stage, Cambridge to London, and it's a decent forecast. Let's start the

:31:24.:31:23.

to London. Starts around midday. forecast with one for Cambrhdge down

:31:24.:31:26.

to London. Starts around midday. A sunny morning I think, with one or

:31:27.:31:33.

two showers maybe, but really another spectacular day weather`wise

:31:34.:31:37.

with sunshine. Forget cycling for a minute. It's the great Yorkshire

:31:38.:31:41.

show this week and it's not looking too bad at the show ground. The risk

:31:42.:31:42.

of one or two showers breakhng out of one or two showers breaking out

:31:43.:31:46.

on Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday looks fine with some sunshine and

:31:47.:31:50.

then Thursday mostly dry and bright. Cloud with a bit of patchy rain by

:31:51.:31:55.

the end of Thursday. A nice week for the Yorkshire show. It's cold here

:31:56.:32:00.

in Ripponden, temperatures dropping like a stone. It's going to be fine

:32:01.:32:08.

with one or two showers possible. In Leeds and Sheffield, round about

:32:09.:32:14.

ten, 11, 12 Celsius; with a light wind. Tomorrow looks set to be

:32:15.:32:17.

another nice day, although it's a another nice day, although it's a

:32:18.:32:20.

higher chance of catching a shower, one or two showers across the

:32:21.:32:25.

Pennines from the word go, so good spells of sunshine in`betwedn.

:32:26.:32:26.

spells of sunshine in`between. There'll be a few showers breaking

:32:27.:32:30.

out here and there, but likd today, very hit and miss and quite a few

:32:31.:32:36.

places will stay dry. Top temperatures at about 18 or 19. In

:32:37.:32:46.

the sunshine, it's going to feel nice with a light breeze.

:32:47.:32:55.

One or two sharp showers developing on Tuesday. Wednesday looks a love

:32:56.:32:57.

hi day with a litology ridge on Tuesday. Wednesday looks a love

:32:58.:33:00.

hi day with a litology ridge of high pressure. Uncertainty for Thursday.

:33:01.:33:05.

Cloud increasing later, the risk of rain in the east. All in all until

:33:06.:33:12.

the end of the week, not too bad. It was the fourth time the tour held

:33:13.:33:17.

a stage in the UK but this was the furthest north it ventured. So did

:33:18.:33:21.

Yorkshire deliver? Brian Robinson, the first Brit to win a stage of the
