Le Tour is coming to town!

Cafe Solo on Market Street.

In just a few weeks The Tour de France is coming! It's a big deal for all the little towns along the route as thousands of people will coming to line our streets for this world famous sporting event. So we are getting ready. There is a buzz about town and there are yellow bikes and yellow tour related shenanigans everywhere...

We are super excited about our specially commissioned lampshades and candle covers made by my friend Claire of A Northern Light

We've only had them for a couple of days and they are flying out already. 

They have such a golden glow. 

Dynamite over the road from us is looking bright and lovely. 

Dynamite Kate, has had some special limited edition Tour t-shirts printed. One with the design help of Russell Horne and printed by Howies, the other by Steve Gagarin

Yorkshire Soap looking pretty as always...

Grab yourself a bar of  special LeTour soap!

Alison at Heart Gallery has been busy yarn bombing her tree! It look fab.

Element's shop front looks fab with it's yellow bike.

They have made some super cute yellow bike rings which are free with every purchase and they are gathering customer photos of them in action on their Le Tour Pinterest board

The Book Case looks rather jolly.

 B Beads have cleverly beaded the spokes of some bicycle wheels.

They look super nice with the light streaming through.

Spirals have made a sweet Hebden Bridge scene from their wares.

Daisy & Sam want to ride their bicycles too.

Le Sale is taking place at Harold Crabtree.

The beautiful Willow Garden has made a moss and ivy covered bike.

What a creative town this is and a rather wonderful place to come and watch the race and do some shopping :)

The big day is on July 6th and the race will be making it's way down Keighley Road and then across to Mytholmroyd and up Cragg Vale Road. Hebden Bridge is also one of the official 'hubs' and we'll have a big screen in the park where you can watch the whole thing in all it's glory. You can find out travel information and everything else you need to know here.

Great post HN. I love those lampshades by Claire, and that Yorkshire Soap image is very good. Just wondering if we can decorate the studio windows somehow?! xx
