I’m so excited. And I just can’t hide it. I’m about to lose control and I think I like it. Why? Because this year’s Tour – the premier sporting event of the year for the bike-centrics among us – incorporates stages from Leeds to Cambridge, giving us the chance to cheer on Chris Froome and Team Sky over moor and fen, before the competition crosses the Channel.
To wear: Ideally, the yellow jersey, but if not, our John Boultbee Criterion jacket, in collaboration with Brooks, would be a very acceptable tweed-lined, bellow-pocketed, shooting-backed, copper-finished substitute.
