|Our day started early with the first car arriving to park at the farm at 5 30 a.m.|
|Family & farming friends (six quad bikes in total!) joined us for a memorable ride over the moors to the Buttertubs Pass.|
|There were tens of thousands of people in the dale and a carnival atmosphere prevailed throughout the weekend|
|A parade of floats, cars and motorbikes came first .....|
|and then the cyclists (pelaton)|
|They simply flew past and so close together, it was all over in a flash!|
Throughout the TdF weekend a rota of volunteers manned the Countryside & Heritage Centre in Keld.
|Scilla demonstrated weaving on her hand loom and Majorie demonstrated hand spinning.|
It was a busy time for everyone but a truly memorable one and will go down in Swaledale's history as a great success.
