Tour de Yorkshire, Foggathorpe, East Yorkshire - Stage One

and here they come....... 

 A small breakaway group at the front

and then the peloton  

The Tour de Yorkshire started today from Beverley. We decided to head further into the course and hope the crowds were not as huge, we did the right thing as we stopped in a layby just outside Foggathorpe. There were just 8 of us and we had brilliant views. Pity about the weather with heavy rain, sleet, hail, a biting wind and freezing temperatures. The riders came past in just a few moments but it was well worth the stand and we will do it all again tomorrow, only this time a little closer to home. Thank you to the Yorkshire Tourism guys for putting on this fabulous event and hope we see it back again next year.
