A COUPLE are hoping to take tourists on a three-wheeled trip round the Yorkshire Dales.

Jason and Judith Richards are set to launch their new range of Yorkshire Trike Tours later this year in time for the Tour de France.

Using their trikes, the Horsforth couple hope to offer a unique experience for visitors to Yorkshire.

Mrs Richards, 50, said: “We’ve had a boom trike now for about six years and when you’re out there with it, the reaction is fantastic. If you park it up for five minutes and come back, there’s always a crowd around it and people are so positive.

“We’ve both worked all our lives and decided it was time to try something new and it’s something we’re both really passionate about.

“When you find something you feel that way about, it really doesn’t feel like work.”

The trikes combine elements of a motorcycle and a car and will be chauffeur driven by Mr Richards, 51, on a variety of routes around the Dales.

The tours will set off from
Ilkley.

But first the couple will have to gain approval from council licensing chiefs.
