Thousands of people are expected to descend on Sheffield when the tour’s Grand Départ stage passes through on July 6, 2014.

The provisional route has cyclists entering South Yorkshire from the Woodhead Pass, then running via Langsett, Bradfield, Oughtibridge, Grenoside, Parson Cross, Fox Hill, Wadsley Bridge, Fir Vale and Wincobank, and ending up at Sheffield Arena.

Residents have already expressed excitement at being given the chance to see the world’s top cyclists.

Other legs of the Grand Départ will take in Leeds and the Yorkshire Dales, while the third UK stage will be from Cambridge to London.
