Le Tour 2014
What a weekend!
It was great to see the village packed with eager spectators and they were not disappointed by the spectacle of some of the world’s greatest riders tearing through the Addingham, following all the vehicles in the caravane and accompanied by the gendarme.
With all the bunting up, colourful bikes in the gardens and on the walls, The Addingham Festival, The Family Fun Food Court at the Primary School, music, special events and menus at our
four FIVE pubs and eating places, and lots of campsites around the village and even the weather near perfect, what could better?
Addingham at its best and an event which will be long remembered!
Our village of Addingham is so good that ‘Le Tour’ came twice, featuring on both the Yorkshire stages – a unique honour seen nowhere else in the 109 year history of the race!
Many congratulations and thanks to all the event organisers and volunteer helpers.
