Huddersfield is not the only place being put on the Tour de France map - the cyclists will whizz through Calderdale as part of Stage Two of the Tour de Yorkshire.

After the race has passed through Keighley, the Tour de France caravan - a procession of floats and vehicles that hand out souvenirs and other freebies to the crowds - is due to reach Hebden Bridge via the A646 at approximately 11.47am.

Then from around 13:33pm, the cyclists should reach Hebden Bridge and the Calderdale leg of the route.

 

At 13:36pm, the first of the racers should appear in Mytholmroyd, around an hour and a half after the caravan has passed through.

The route then enters Greater Manchester via Blackstone Edge Road, reaching Ripponden at around 2pm.

Riders will tackle the Cragg Vale and Ripponden bank hill climbs - not for the faint hearted!

The race route comes back into Calderdale when it passes through Greetland , near Elland , at around 2.10pm, and riders will begin the Cote de Greetland hill climb at 2.15pm.

From there, cyclists will head for Huddersfield via the A629, beginning the Kirklees section of the route at around 14:18pm.
