On Sunday 30th April, the Tour de Yorkshire bike race will pass through Penistone, where Lavender International Headquarters are located.

The grueling bike race starts in Bridlington on Friday 28th April and consists of three stages; which will be completed across three days.

The riders will pass through Penistone during Stage 3; which is apparently the toughest stage of the Tour de Yorkshire, knicknamed “The Yorkshire Terrier”.  The riders will enter South Yorkshire in Penistone, heading towards Stocksbridge, Deepcar, Wigtwizzle, Ewden Height and Midhopestones before finishing at Fox Valley.  The stages are as follows:

Penistone and the surrounding villages have been gearing up for the exciting race by decorating the streets with yellow and blue bikes, bunting and banners.  There will be plenty of support for the competitors as they pass through the streets that is for sure!

Please be aware that there will be temporary road closures and traffic restrictions in the area for Stage 3 of the event, click here for more information.

We wish all who are competing the very best of luck!
