A huge yellow bike has appeared on the roof of Leeds Trinity shopping centre in celebration of the upcoming Tour de Yorkshire.

Leeds Trinity shopping centre prepped for TDY


A selfie spot for the public to take pictures of the attraction has been set up, where you can get involved and post with the hashtag #TrinityTDY on social media.

The race which takes place from this Thursday through until Sunday, has 4 different start and end points and is split into male or female categories.

The race will showcase beautiful Yorkshire views on the 4 different routes, which will be aired by ITV4 with live coverage and highlights.

Big names will also take place in the Tour de Yorkshire, such as Ben Swift and Tom Pidcock, who are both members of the Great Britain Cycling Team.

This is Swift’s first comeback after suffering a non-displaced fracture of his vertebrae at the Tour of Flanders.

Many have loved being a part of the event, since it started in 2015, inspired by ‘le Tour de France’.

The race will pass through Leeds city centre on the 6th May from 15:53 where large crowds are expected to gather to cheer on the cyclists.
