Last week we reported the Tour de France Le Grand Depart Le Grand Coincidence, with Yorkshire also using a yellow Y like the greenYgrey, and focusing on yellowing the greenYgrey Yorkshire countryside in celebration of the world’s longest cycling race starting in the English county of Wensleydale cheese and many a golden summer ale.

Hi, it’s Paco Wolfsang, satirical comedy fashionista apprentica with another sweetly soporific sorty into the world of greenYgrey fashion, packed with high season hues guaranteed to put a smile on your slacks.
The coincidences kept coming on the day of the race too you know, and one was of particular interest to the fashion department in the greenYgrey.
Leeds and Yorkshire is going gargantuan greenYgrey this week. It is not in celebration of this website unfortunately, but is for a great reason. Yes, the Tour de France start (Le Grand Depart) is in Leeds on Saturday morning, and after the first day finishes in Harrogate, the second day will see the 198 cyclists whizz south through emerald summer dales from York to Sheffield. The third and final day in Britain will travel from Cambridge to London.
Tour de France Le Grand Depart
Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, satirical comedy sports reporter inspired by darts legend Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.
The greenYgrey’s promotion of yellow rebranding has of course been developing for several years – before the Le Grand Depart was awarded to Leeds; but the Tour de France has of course been awarding the iconic yellow jersey to the race leader for much longer.
So, although the greenYgrey and Tour de France have no direct links or influence on each other, they are meeting this weekend in Leeds and Yorkshire in a time-travel cultural-connection Le Grand Coincidence.
