I do hope Harrogate are involved in this count, but if not surely we will be after this! The app allows you to follow the exciting summer of cycling in the region, an interactive game which is currently riding high in the top 50 racing games in the iPhone App Store charts.
Yorkshire’s Great Race is a multi-level game, with striking illustrations of the region's beautiful cities, towns and valleys - including Harrogate’s iconic Cenotaph and Bettys Tearooms; participants can also race through the streets of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Holmfirth, Buttertub, the Peak District and Langsett.
