New service keeps cyclists up to date with Tour details

Have your say

A new information point will keep cycling fans up to date about the Tour de France’s visit to South Yorkshire.

The service, on Shrewsbury Road, Penistone, opens today and aims to help residents and visitors access events, timings, the route and camping for the race in July.

Barnsley Council is providing the service on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, so people can prepare to watch Le Grand Depart as it travels the 8.1 mile Langsett stretch of the route.
