Video: Where to watch the Tour de France in Yorkshire
Head for the hills to see the best action
Jenkin Road in Sheffield may not have the romance of l’Alpe d’Huez or the Tourmalet, but it’s a 30 percent grade at its steepest and, more importantly, it’s just 4km from the finish of the second stage of the Tour de France. That makes it GCN’s top tip for a viewing spot as the race’s visit to Yorkshire comes to a close.
In this video Simon Richardson shows you the best spots to watch the Tour in Yorkshire and discusses how to get from one another (top tip: don’t drive).
If you’re about to hot-foot to Yorkshire, it’s essential viewing.
