Must Watch: How to Prepare for the Yorkshire Grand Départ

If you’re preparing to head out to Yorkshire for the Grand Départ at this year’s Tour de France, The Camp On Holme Moss has some advice. OK, it’s not the official Yorkshire video, but the folks from Holme Moss have put together quite an amusing clip. Billed as the number one camp site to watch the Tour in Yorkshire, there are still a few spots left.

Check out the official Yorkshire Grand Départ video after the break…

What did he call the bean dish? I listened twice and couldn’t quite make it out?

@carl – did you mean “pie ‘n’ peas”?
Amusing video, it uses the music of the old Hovis bread advert, and the hill in the first clip is the one the delivery boy rides down. (It’s actually in Dorset in the south not Yorkshire!).

@Carl: “pie and peas”–it’s a meat pie with mushy peas on top.
