The best places to watch the Tour de France as it roars through the district have been revealed.
Spectator hubs will be created at Riverside Gardens in Ilkley, Victoria Park in Keighley, and Central Park in Haworth, for the Grand Depart.
The hubs are organised to be some of the best places to watch the opening stages of the world-famous race for free. There will be smaller hubs in Otley town centre, on Skipton high street, and at Grassington National Park Centre.
TdFHUB2104 Ltd has revealed the location of the hubs.
The Ilkley hub is one of the bigger ones and will feature two big screens. It will run over four days from July 3 to 6 and is expected to attract more than 13,000 fans.
There will be food stalls, cycle parking facilities, a large car park and disabled access.
The Keighley site, which can hold about 4,500 people, will be organised for July 5 and 6 and will feature a big screen, a funfair, and disabled facilities and toilets.
