Tony Robertson asks on his blog site What about it starting in Southport? see below………. Those who take an interest in cycling will know that the most famous cycle race on the planet is this year starting in Yorkshire! A recent holiday in York brought this home to me because there were yellow painted cycles everywhere as temporary pieces of public artwork. A fine sight they made too all across historic York. Here are a couple of shots I took and there are more on my flickr page at:- [email protected] But it got me thinking that Southport is a ‘Cycle Town’ so how about a bid being put in to start a future Tour de France in Southport? It could even be a project that Sefton Council and the Liverpool City Region could take up so to include the likes of Liverpool too – so long as it is not hijacked by Liverpool of course! Just a thought but why not promote Southport this way. If Sefton Council does not aim high it will never get off the ground. Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
