Bikes promoting 'Le Grand Départ': Fargate
The 2014 Tour de France started in Yorkshire and on day 2 finished in Sheffield. To promote the event reclaimed bikes were painted and placed at various locations in and around the city. Most were painted yellow but this one on Fargate is in the polka dot colours of the 'King of the Mountains'. Fargate was, appropriately, the site of a continental market at the time.
