Stirring North Yorkshire folk-rock band Area 40 have recorded a song and video to celebrate Yorkshire’s role in the forthcoming Tour de France.

Called Road Trip, the video sees the eclectic, duelling electric guitar/violin band getting on their bicycles and riding some of the local route that the world’s greatest cyclists will take when Le Grand Depart takes place in early July.

The video also sees the five-piece band portrayed above, and in the middle of, Knaresborough which welcome the Tour de France riders on Sunday, July 6.

Road Trip is available for download now at iTunes
