Tour de Yorkshire in Pecket Well – 3 May 2015
Following on from the excitement of the Tour de France in Yorkshire in 2014, when the race passed through Haworth and Hebden Bridge via Pecket Well, Stage 3 of the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire in 2015 also visited our village, passing the top of our drive! This time the riders were cycling uphill from Hebden Bridge before heading over to Haworth. Cycling fans turned out in force to watch Bradley Wiggins & Co flexing their muscles as they powered up the gruelling 2-mile ascent via the Cote de Hebden Bridge. It was Wiggo’s last race and even he found it tough!
This video gives you a flavour of this event, which started in Scarborough on 1 May, progressed to York the following day and eventually finished in Leeds.
