Inspired by Tour de France … Le Tour Yorkshire

As a passionate cyclist I am over the moon to hear that the Tour de France is virtually passing my front door next year.  I regularly cycle up Cragg Vale (the longest continuous gradient in England – 968 feet over 5.5 miles) and usually my head is full of glass.  Now I spend my time trying to work out the perfect spot to sit and watch le Tour pass by.  Inspired by this I have begun to work on designs that represent this exciting event.

I plan to make a range of coasters, keyrings and cufflinks with representing cyclists passing through the Tour route.  I hope to cover all the major landmarks on route.  The first two are pictured below and will be on sale in Hebden Bridge and Halifax within a fortnight.  I am currently working on Leeds, Ilkley, Skipton and Hawes.
