If you didn’t know that the Tour de France is coming to Yorkshire on 5th and 6th July (this weekend), then you must have been living in a cupboard. It’s here! How has it changed things for you?

There are yellow bicycles popping up across the county as the riders will be finishing stage 2 of the Grand Depart right here in Sheffield. Whether you’re native to Sheffield, Yorkshire or none of the above, it’s hard to ignore the fact that the small villages and towns along the route are benefiting from some well-deserved international attention.

In Sheffield alone, beautiful hidden gems like Bradfield are coming to life to celebrate the riders’ cycling through. Events, activities and parties are being held by the local community, supported by local businesses to showcase what the rural communities have to offer.

International sporting events like this don’t pass through Yorkshire often, so in the few days before #TDF2014, make sure your business stands out for this once in a lifetime occasion. Get involved, tweet about it, post it on Facebook, share your local events and activities in celebration of it and most of all, enjoy it! Getting involved in the online conversation is important for all this weekend.

Let us know how you’ll be celebrating the Tour de France, what you’ve got planned and how it’s affected your business/home life. Has it got you on your bike again? Or like me, do you just want to be as fit as those cyclists? However the Tour de France affects you and/or your business, send us your experience and we’ll share in our next blog.
