The Tour de France edges into Lancashire this summer – and so does one of the most authorative names in reporting cycling.

Before the Yellow Jersey reaches France, three stages will take the cyclists from Leeds to London.

Stage 1: 191km Leeds/Harrogate

Stage 2: 198km York/Sheffield

Stage 3: 159km Cambridge/London

To tie-in with the event the Clitheroe Grand will be staging a Tour De France special on May 18, hosted by Channel 4 presenter Ned Boulting.

Boulting will be talking about the history of the world’s most famous race, and the Lance Armstrong doping scandal.

There will also be a special question and answer session with Boulting following the talk.

This is a rare opportunity to get the inside track on the race and a must for all cycling fans.

An evening with Ned Boulting, Clitheroe Grand, £13.50. Sunday, May 18. 7.30 pm
