Inspired by Le Grand Départ?

This year, the very grandest of the Grand Tours came to Yorkshire. Hundreds of thousands of spectators lined almost every inch of the roadside as the world’s greatest cycling talent tore through some of the UK’s most iconic countryside in the first three stages of Le Tour de France 2014.

Yorkshire’s Grand Départ inspired many families to dig the bikes out of the shed and rediscover the simple pleasure of a family bike ride. Unfortunately, many people found that the pleasure was not as simple as expected, discovering flat tyres, rusty chains, seized cables and corroded frames, now far too small for their owner, piled up between the lawnmower and the garden rake.
