A Bicycle Ride in Yorkshire

Illustrated Guide to the Route of Le Tour Yorkshire


In July 2014 the greatest cycle race in the world visits God's Own County of Yorkshire.

The 101st edition of Le Tour de France starts in Leeds and spends two days cycling over 240 miles through the county.

Inspired by Yorkshire's wonderful landscape and history A Bicycle Ride in Yorkshire is an illustrated guide to the route of Le Tour Yorkshire, by cyclist, writer and artist Heather Dawe.

It is a guide to riding the route, to the sights and landscape seen along the way and to the rich cycling heritage found on Yorkshire's roads.

Beautifully illustrated with Heather's paintings, the route is brought to life. On the first day Le Tour departs from Leeds into the rolling scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, past the breweries of Masham to finish in the spa town of Harrogate. Day two begins in the historic city of York, from where it explores the industrial valleys of the South Pennines, skirting the Peak District before finishing in the steel city of Sheffield.

A Bicycle Ride in Yorkshire is an essential read for any cycling, Tour de France or Yorkshire aficionado.

Heather Dawe has a passion for cycling, running and climbing in wild places. She is an endurance athlete who won the 2007 Helvellyn Triathlon, has finished first lady in the Fred Whitton Challenge twice and, in 2008, won the renowned Three Peaks Cyclo-Cross. As a runner she holds the female record for the Old County Tops fell race, has won at Elite level in many mountain marathons including the LAMM and the OMM, and has completed the Bob Graham Round in under 22 hours. She has lived in Yorkshire for 20 years. Spending her days working as a statistician and systems architect, she lives with her partner and their young daughter. Her passion for wild places extends to landscape painting and writing. A talented artist, her work has been exhibited in numerous places. A Bicycle Ride in Yorkshire is her second book, her first being Adventures in Mind, published in May 2013.
