The countdown is on for the world’s biggest cycling race coming through Calderdale - and we want all your snaps of the Tour de France.

The Grand Depart will come to our region on Sunday July 6.

Whether you are watching from one of the spectator hubs, in your back garden or joining thousands lining the route, please send in your pictures from the event to or via Twitter and Facebook.

If you are doing anything special on the day to celebrate the event, we’d also like to hear about it

Legal firm Benjamin Roberts Solicitors are getting into the spirit by taking part in a ‘Wear it Yellow Day’ on July 3.

The Halifax firm is pledging £10 for each of their staff members who turn up to work wearing the sunny colour.

Principle solicitor Graham Roberts said: “Supporting local causes such as The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is at the heart of business and it is also a great way of showing local pride when the Grand Depart starts in West Yorkshire.”
