The Tour de France is known for it's ending, on the Champs-Elysees but this year the big race starts on The Headrow in Leeds. On 5th July the world’s most famous cycling race will depart from Leeds town hall, passing directly in front of The Light before heading through the stunning Yorkshire Dales.
I love the fact that the Tour de France will be passing through my home town, through the place I like to call home, actually starting outside the place that we got married (Leeds Town Hall) and the lucky cyclists are in for a treat, getting to cycle through the stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales.
With only a month to go until this momentous event comes to Leeds, The Light is offering cyclists the chance to win a Boardman Bike and helmet.
The Boardman Road Comp Bike 2014 (worth £699.99) and Boardman Team Road Bike Helmet (worth £49.99) will be on display at the centre until 27 July 2014. With its lightweight alloy frame, full carbon fibre fork and shimano 18 speed gear shifters, the lucky winner will be able to enjoy the ride of their life.
You can enter online now on The Light website (note: the winner will need to collect the bike from The Light, Leeds)
The Light, recently rebranded as La Lumière, in celebration of the big event, will also host a full programme of cycling-related events throughout June and early July including free bike maintenance workshops and pedal-powered smoothie bikes.
So, what are you waiting for, pop over and get entering for a chance to win the fantastic bike.
