The bunting’s up, the flags are flying and the Yorkshire Tea’s ready to be brewed. Yorkshire’s all set for the world’s biggest annual sporting event to descend on its rolling hills for the start of the 2014 Tour de France.

Stage one of The Grand Départ 2014 starts in Leeds and takes the riders 190.5km to Harrogate. At stage two, the riders make the 201km trip from York to Sheffield. Tour organisers expect over a million people to line the Yorkshire streets.

Stage three sees the riders taking to the streets of Cambridge to complete the final leg of the UK tour before they head over to France to complete the remaining 2,953km of the race.

Calling all cyclists. It’s time to #GetOnYourBike. Here’s your chance to get your hands on a Movistar Team bike which will be raced in the 2014 Tour. We want to see you or your racing pack out on the roads or conquering those hills. To enter, send your photos, videos and vines to @O2sports on Twitter using #GetonYourBike.

We’ll be looking out for the most challenging and daring shots – scenery is key. If you can show us how keen a rider you are, the more chance you’ll have of being the lucky Movistar Team bike owner.

The competition’s open from Wednesday 2 July and closes on Tuesday 8th July after the Tour leaves for France. We’ll pick one winner for the Movistar Team bike from all the photos and videos shared with #GetOnYourBike. There’ll be a team of Movistar people ready to pick their favourite. As usual, certain rules apply.

We’ll be following the Movistar Team on the road throughout the tour so make sure you keep an eye on @O2sports on Twitter to see how they’re getting on. The team themselves are at @Movistar_Team.
