London is gearing up for all things bike in 2014 as the world’s greatest cycling extravaganza, Le Tour de France, whips through the capital’s streets on July 7 before weaving back to its Gallic homeland for the denouement of the toughest test on two wheels…
With the third stage of the Tour De France threading its way through a county that inspired some of John Constable’s most celebrated works of art on July 7, it’s the perfect excuse for planning a cycling break in the East of England. Ready, set, pedal!
Stage 3 of Le Tour spins through Cambridgeshire; a county boasting the highest take up of cycling in the country where one in four people choose to cycle to work, and that’s not just students from the famous University peddling between lectures either…
Inspired to get on yer bike by the upcoming cycling spectacular that is the Tour De France? Then why not cycle your heart out just like Chris Froome and Mark Cavendish, exploring some of England's most idllyic spots on two wheels.
First stop, Yorkshire!
The English countryside plus a dusting of snow ❄️ adds up to a chocolate box scene that looks too good to true, but we can assure you it is. This lovely photo of Castle Combe in Wiltshire was taken by @monalogue just a few hours ago. Share your snowy England snaps with us using #VisitEngland and you could feature too!
