Everyone knows cyclist don't know what traffic lights are for, but perhaps someone should have told Bradford the Tour de Yorkshire is coming through Silsden on Sunday 3rd May (and will be going up Bolton Road) happy :)

and of course on that day, it is not just the "peleton" that'll be going that way - it is the general public "sportive" that is also crossing that bit! Oh the joys!

No traffic lights involved, according to your post its traffic control via Stop/Go Boards, which can easily be moved, my main concern would be if they are surface dressing when the bicyclists come through it might be a bit bumpy for them and slow them down a bit

If I had posted this yesterday you might have thought "April Fool", think about ithappy :) The dates on the picture of the roadworks map is for the work to be carried out between 1 May and 31 July. When was the last time you saw this sort of work happening on a Sunday?

I just used it as an excuse to publicise the TdY

Bought mine yesterday, well worth the money as it is a nice soft material and will look good floating in the breeze.

The colours for The Tour de Yorkshire are basically turquoise/blue, white and yellow. The following link to the jerseys will give you a good idea of the colours you could use.

letour.yorkshire.com/tour-de-yorkshire/the-jerseys

It looks like the TdY bunting which Welcome to Yorkshire was selling is no longer available. ( letour.yorkshire.com )

As a matter of interest the Tour de France starts in Holland at the beginning of July and the colours will be orange + the usual jersey colours which is perhaps where the Google confusion comes from.

Don't forget you can buy large (5ft x 3ft) Yorkshire flags from Twiggs, and at all the churches for just 4.00 (profits from these will go to good causes in Silsden)

The race comes down Skipton Road from Kildwick, then through Bell Square and out of Silsden towards Addingham up Bolton Road - see letour.yorkshire.com/stage-3/map. The race will arrive in Silsden from approximately 3.15 pm onwards on Sunday 3 May but don't forget the amateurs coming through in the morning in the Sportive

14 May 2015 9am

The promised road resurfacing of Bolton Road is now happening, if you travel that way you will know all about it.

It's just a top layer they are putting on so I suppose it will all be done by lunchtime.
