This is great news, with one caveat. The Tour de France tends to be a total sausagefest. Yorkshire being the starting point for the tour is a marvellous opportunity to rectify this, not least in tribute to the amazing, mens'-world-record-beating Yorkshirewoman Beryl Burton.

Sort it out, cycling world!

This is really not going to help my anxiety dreams about being swarmed by lycra louts once my bike is fixed.

Sure, we have two decent sofas and a spare room (sans bed, but still there), so a few people visiting not a problem. Route not announced AFAICS, so while it might be close to us it might be a PITA to get there.

Oh cool - my Mum's a big cycling fan, so she'll be really pleased :)
