Bomb the Bike!

Last year the Tour de France started in Yorkshire.  It was a huge success.  Crowds lined the route and it created a great sense of belonging amongst local residents.  Many Yorkshire knitters had spent hours knitting little jerseys which were then hung along the route.

This year the local government have decided to do it again with the Tour de Yorkshire.  It takes place over three days and information on the route etc can be found here http://letour.yorkshire.com/tour-de-yorkshire

Le Tour

 

 

 

 

 

Our knitting group, The Guisborough KnitWits were approached to help out with the decorating.

Many hours were spent by the ladies knitting little jumpers in the Yorkshire colours, yellow, light blue and white.  We also made up squares, pom pons and flowers which were knitted and crocheted.

Last week we got together and put all these onto an old bike.  Lots of coffee, tea and biscuits were consumed during the process!

This week it was all put together outside Sunnyfield House on Guisborough High Street.

If you live anywhere near why don’t you come along and have a little look at our cycling themed yarn bombing?
