The start line for the Tour de France Grand Depart has been lined with official banners as the July 5 send off approaches.

The roadside branding along The Headrow outside Leeds Art Gallery and the city’s town hall is the first physical sign to tee up the world famous race’s well-awaited arrival in the region.

The official Grand Depart logo, which will be seen on and around the route, is complemented by Leeds City Council’s ‘Cycling Starts Here’ emblem aimed to promote wider cycling activity in the area.
