TDF Caravan


At the weekend Le Tour de France came to Yorkshire. In fact, not only did it come to Yorkshire, it started in Yorkshire! Stage 1 on Saturday started in Leeds and finished in Harrogate. Then on Sunday the riders started in York and finished in Sheffield.

Tomorrow I will write about it all in more detail but for today I will leave you with some photos of the caravan. The caravan (french: caravane) happens before the race and it is when around 180 publicity vehicles drive the route thowing freebies into the crowd.

Well that is what I thought would happen. However on the road that we were along most of the floats drove past really quickly without throwing anything out or even waving to the crowd. Oh they were also over half an hour late.

Anyway some of the floats were quite cool, my favourites were the massive bottles of wine and the miffys.










What do you think about the floats?

  1. They look really cool, though I don't think throwing wine out to the crowd would have been a good idea x

    1. I know, I think it's the red eyes which make it look creepy!
