TdY 2018 Stage 1 – Beverley Minster and Beverley St Mary’s bells ring for the race.
TdY 2018 Stage 2 – Barnsley St Mary’s gets the full police motorcade as the bells ring for both the womens and mens races.
TdY 2018 Stage – By the time the race got to Richmond, even Siry Gary Verity and the race leader Harry Tanfield were talking about bells. Or bikes. Anyway Richmond bells rang.
TdY 2018 Stage 4 – after 3 days ringing for the race, eventually jobs at home got the better of me on Stage 4. That said, here’s a reminder of Penistone St Johns. Their bells rang on Stage 1 and their tower grabbed the attention of the helicopter TV crew. Well done @PrettyThings and the school children of Penistone with their handprinted fabric cascades.
Now, here’s a few more goodies from the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire
