Babies and toddlers in Wharfedale and Aireborough have been getting into the Tour de France spirit.

Rhythm Time classes in Otley, Ilkley, Burley-in-Wharfedale and Guiseley have all been featuring events to mark the race's historic visit to the area.

One of the activities has involved creating a giant yellow chain, featuring links made by the children and their parents and carers, that will be used in music sessions.

Local Rhythm Time owner, Lynne O’Malley, said: "We wanted our children and their carers to join in the fun of the Tour and we’ve created a number of ways to make the week memorable.

"In this particular activity, we’re going to see how long our chain will be and then use it in our music classes - the children will love it!"

Lynne has also devised a number of Tour de France related songs for the classes, using tunes the children will easily recognise from their usual sessions.
