Le Tour de Yorkshire Map
Last year the Tour de France started in the English county of Yorkshire. The race was such a success with the locals that they are asked the Tour de France organizers to help them set-up their own race, the Tour de Yorkshire.
My favorite map of the 2014 Tour de France was created by the official website of Yorkshire tourism. Thankfully they have also created route maps for the three stages of the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire, 1-3 May 2015.
Stage 1 is from Bridlington to Scarborough. Stage 2 travels from Selby to York and Stage 3 is Wakefield to Leeds. Each of the three maps shows the route which the cyclists will take and an elevation chart of the mapped stage. Each map also includes places of interest to visit along and around the route of the race. You can therefore use the maps to not only find a great location to watch the Tour de Yorkshire but also find interesting places to visit nearby.
