Three miles of streets are decked out in yellow ribbon

Have your say

Cyclists have started decorating the Tour route as it winds through Sheffield’s housing areas.

The riders tied yellow ribbon around lampposts to decorate the route through Southey, Parkwood Springs, Burngreave, Newhall, Grimesthorpe, Wincobank and Attercliffe.

They completed three miles on Wednesday and headed out again last night in response to criticism Sheffield was not’ embracing’ the Tour.

Organiser Mick Nott, of Cycle Sheffield, said residents came out to join in.
