For lots of information for the Tour de Silsden - times, route, tv coverage, etc see
tdy.granddeparty.org.uk

ROAD CLOSURES

The road closure will be a rolling road closure as the race progresses along the route. I would guess it will be closed in Silsden from about 3pm and open soon after they go through.

The main race are due in Silsden between 15.20pm and 15.40pm

Don’t forget there are thousands of Amateur riders doing the same route earlier in the day and the roads will not be closed – expect delays. The amateur riders will be all through by 1.30pm

The race route through Silsden is down Skipton Road - Bell Square - up Bolton Road

PS If you live on the route DON’T FORGET TO MOVE YOUR CAR TO SOMEWHERE SAFE

ENTERTAINMENT - FOOD - TOILETS
The pubs and cafés will be open and serving food and refreshments. The churches will be open for refreshments, the methodist church will have a large screen showing the race. Across the road from Bell Square come and try some old fashioned Yorkshire games and some we have just invented.

ENJOY

Hearty congratulations to the people of Silsden for getting behind this event, in contrast to the rather feeble efforts in Sutton and Crosshills.

The rain will stop at 11am, it will then be cloudy for the afternoon race.

Don't forget to look for the sheep on the road outside the Kings Arms. (if they haven't been washed away).

Your too modest Peter, the weather did as you instructed.

We all stood at Tannery Corner, what a great view of the bikes and crowds coming up Bolton Road.

Nothing like a "Do" to put the Great back in Britain happy :)

Well done again Silsden

Local newspaper write ups

3:51pm

SILSDEN: And the race has passed through Silsden! Plenty of cheers and excitement between 3.39pm and 3.48pm as all the riders and accompanying motorcyclists whizzed through.

The two leading cyclists were approximately two minutes ahead of the rest.

Most of the cyclists were in two large groups which raced up Bolton Road at 3.43pm and 3.45pm, with smaller groups not too far behind.

Hundreds of spectators present, including youngsters standing on a wall and banging on the top of a bus shelter as the cyclists went past!

Silsden people turn out in force to welcome Tour de Yorkshire riders

HUNDREDS of people turned out in Silsden to give the Tour de Yorkshire riders a rousing reception.

Most people massed on the pavements near the Bell Square junction with Bolton Road, with people of all ages beginning to arrive from late morning, hours before the cyclists were due to arrive.

The area was decked out with bunting and Yorkshire flags, and entertainment included Yorkshire themed games, live music, and barbecues, as well as refreshments in Silsden Methodist Church.
