Pedal power: Riders race part Leeds Harewood House

Have your say

YORKSHIRE has got a taste of the Tour de France as racers sped past Harewood House which is part of the race route.

Cyclists including former Tour winner Oscar Pereiro were at the famous stately home yesterday for the filming of a promotional video.

It is being produced for the Dare 2b Festival of Cycling which is being held at the 18th century building in July to coincide with the race passing through the grounds.
