A MURAL portraying an inspirational British cyclist adorns the outside of a Keighley bike shop which is on the route of the Tour de France.

The painting of Bradley Wiggins holding the Union Flag aloft was created on the window shutter of Aire Valley Cycles, in South Street, by Silsden-based artist Tony O'Keeffe.

Mr O'Keeffe – who is also known as Buzz Longpencil, his artist name – said he completed the mural after proposing it to the bike business and receiving an enthusiastic response.

"They were very encouraging and loved the idea of celebrating a great British hero," he added.

Aire Valley Cycles shop worker, Joe Gagg, said: "The mural is brilliant, it's getting a lot of attention."
