le tour de france

The Handmade Parade presents a new event in the preparations for the Tour de France in Yorkshire. They will be creating a revolutionary and brilliant parade in Todmorden. The Fantastical Cycle Parade will be a ride through the streets of Tod with bicycles, tricycles, unicycles, scooters, prams and wheelchairs transformed into all manner of strange and wonderful mechanical creatures and pedal-powered contraptions.

As ever, there will be workshops - this time with bikes, scooters, prams etc, to transform them into fantastical creatures to take part in the parade.
