Luckily the best stage for us to attend was Sunday's Wakefield to Leeds. So we sent off, not too early, on Sunday morninng and caught the train to Ilkley. The weather was not too promising but we went prepared with big coats and wet weather over trousers in case it poured down. The main professional race was preceded by a sportive race.
The Cow and Calf rocks.
Sportive riders were encouraged all the way and some fun riders too.
and the crowds grew
Just before 4pm the lead riders arrived
