It’s chuffin’ great that another reet good cycling event is coming to Yorkshire this week. Harrogate is to be the home of the 2019 Road World Championships – The Biggest Sporting Event in the UK this year!
We’re huge fans of cycling ‘ere at Shaws and are often out on our bikes riding up ‘n down the rolling hills taking in the stunning scenery around Huddersfield. We’re so excited to be visiting the event and getting up close to the action as we watch some of the races over the weekend. It will be great to see the beautiful Yorkshire countryside on the TV.
We’ll be shouting loudly for two great Yorkshire cyclists competing this week. Lizzie Deignan from Otley is a strong contender to win the women’s road race with her home advantage. Whilst Rotherham’s Ben Swift could be in for sprint finish with the elite men if he can hang on in till the end with his GB team mates.
You may even catch Mr Pickles out ‘n about over the weekend as we all know he is an avid cycling enthusiast!
