Well it’s all gone “Le Tour” mad. There’s bunting and bicycles, yellow or white with red spots everywhere. The town is looking very special and very pretty and the excitement is definitely growing. I had a quick morning excursion to find some decor for our little house on Monday and took the opportunity to get some photos. I very nearly missed the yarn bombed bike above as I was so busy taking a photo of the skeleton on a bike, it was just lucky I went back that way.
Even the planters and hanging baskets are full of red and white flowers.
If you are a fan of “Last of the Summer Wine” (which was filmed here and in the surrounding area) then you might recognise this next place…
.. yep it’s Sid’s Cafe. But as you can see it has a new look with it’s King of the Mountain spots.
As well as all the decorations traffic restriction signs have been popping up all over the place (don’t ask!), never mind the roadworks we have had to make sure the roads are suitable! The roadworks are all gone now. We are wondering how chaotic it will be but we will be in amongst the action at the weekend as Le Tour passes through. Don’t know if I will get any decent photos but I’ll try. Will you be watching Le Tour? I’ll wave.
