That's when our little town goes on lock down, welcoming the hoards of cycling groupies who follow Le Tour as it winds its way through West Yorkshire.
Our town is a hive of activity. The Arts festival is in full swing, the Artists Studios are open and there are street parties blossoming in the outlying areas and the icing on the very laid back and excitable cake is the sun is shining!
I can hear the music floating up from the bottom of the extremely Happy Valley and I am very proud to live in such a verdant and lively enclave.
Viva le Tour!
