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
