About this programme

As Yorkshire gears up to host the start of the Tour de France, Countryfile is in and around the village of Oxenhope, near Bradford. Ellie Harrison gets on her bike and meets an artist using the Yorkshire hills as a giant canvas and tells the tale of a world-beating woman cyclist, while John Craven meets a cyclist who has immortalised England's steepest incline in grass. Tom Heap investigates the use of nicotine-based pesticides and the controversial ban on bee-killing insecticides, and Adam Henson sees how the farm-winner is getting on in Snowdonia.
