Yellow bikes galore!

We enjoyed Sunday’s glorious Yorkshire Grand Depart so much that we’re loathe to take down the decorations.  Le Tour de France may not have come closer to Bishopthorpe than the racecourse, but that didn’t stop yellow bikes and bunting being displayed throughout the village.  Here are a few images to remember the event by:

Even the Archbishop’s gateway had “Le Tour” treatment!

TdF_7Hairdresser, Jacqui, used a customer’s yellow bike for display in her shop window in Acaster Lane.  She was lucky as the customer, Kate Radley, also supplied a “model” cyclist as well!  Kate is a volunteer with Riding for the Disabled and Jacqui supplied a collecting tin for customers to drop in a donation.  In just a few days, GBP73 was collected.
