Airedale Springs supplies springs and wire forms to many well-known bicycle manufactures and the Tour was an ideal opportunity to demonstrate to the community what we do.

Yorkshire was privileged this year to host “The Tour de France – Grand Depart”. The two stages from Leeds to Harrogate via the Yorkshire Dales and York to Sheffield via the Pennines were a great advert for Yorkshire showing the beauty of our region to the world.

On Sunday 6th July after much preparation and anticipation the race passed through the village of Haworth and up the famous cobbled main street. The weather was glorious, the crowds huge and the atmosphere fantastic.

It was the longest street party the area has ever seen.

(With thanks to our employee Kath Rutter and family for allowing us to use their garden wall).

The Peloton rounds the corner into Bridgehouse Lane opposite the entrance to Airedale Springs.
