The Grand Départ of the Tour de France 2014 will take place in Yorkshire. CTC backed 'Le Bid' in the summer and is delighted that part of the 101st race will be in Leeds where CTC is involved in community outreach work.
Seven years after the Tour last came to Britain, the city of Leeds will host the start of the 2014 Tour de France.
Race organisers have confirmed the Tour will start in Yorkshire on 5-6 July 2014 and then it will head south to London for the third stage.
The race last came to the UK in 2007, when two million people came out to watch the prologue and a road stage from London to Canterbury.
