The Tour de France 2014's first three stages are taking place in England - and details of the route have been unveiled.

The 'Grand Depart' will be in Leeds on 5 July, with the first stage going through the Yorkshire Dales before finishing in Harrogate.

Stage two goes from York to Sheffield, via Keighley and Huddersfield.

The third stage runs from Cambridge to The Mall in London, with a quick detour to see the Olympic Park.

The gruelling three-week cycle race, won by Bradley Wiggins in 2012, then heads to France.

It has come to the UK three times before - in 1974, 1994 and 2007.
