The 101st edition of the Tour de France will start in Yorkshire with the second stage (which starts in York) passing right past the village of Green Hammerton on the A59. The village junction with the A59 will make an excellent viewing point as the peloton sweeps up the road from Kirk Hammerton. The A59 will be closed in the Green Hammerton area from around 6am on the day and parking restrictions in the village will apply. There will be dedicated Car Parking within the village which will be clearly signed.
