Everyone is talking about the Tour de France - including some of Yorkshire’s most recognisable faces.

Coun Roger Harington, cycling champion at Leeds City Council which is the lead local authority organising the Yorkshire Grand Depart, has jumped on our special branded bike for an exclusive two-wheeled chat.

He has joined popstars, soapstars and Tour organisers in quite literally gearing up for the arrival of the world’s greatest cycle race with help from The Yorkshire Post and Yorkshire Evening Post.

Through a series of specially created online videos, we have asked both Tour organisers and famous faces to Go the Mile and tell us about their plans for Le Tour while cycling during our On Yer Bike! interviews.

We are unleashing a pair of our exclusive two-wheeled videos each day until Thursday.
