Women's Tour de Yorkshire 2018 - Stage 1

That was an early start today in Beverley for Tour de Yorkshire. When your alarm time starts with a five it’s always too early! Thankfully the sunrise start didn’t deter people coming out to watch the race and Yorkshire was showing off with beautiful weather shining across the countryside for most of the day. Here’s a selection of photos from the stage, there’s some serious climbing coming up tomorrow!
