Tour de France fans will be able to watch the race’s entire first day from Otley Methodist Church.

The church will have a big-screen TV on during Saturday, July 5 as part of its celebrations to mark the Tour’s passage through the town.

Breakfasts, morning coffee and cakes and lunches will also be served to cater for some of the thousands of visitors expected on the day.

The church is also running a Tour de France-themed competition with Otley’s primary schools too, challenging pupils to come up with an exciting T-shirt design to commemorate the occasion.
