Have your say

Cycling while wearing a remote-controlled light suit in the middle of the night might not be your every day commute.

But organisers of the Yorkshire Festival 2014, the first pre-Tour de France arts festival, are appealing for riders to don the outfits as part of a peloton of 50 illuminated cyclists to help make one of the spectacular events on its programme a reality.

The choreographed Ghost Peloton ride, put together by Leeds-based Phoenix Dance Theatre and NVA in partnership with charity Sustrans, will take place outside The Tetley on May 16 and 17 in the build up to the Grand Depart on July 5 and 6.
