Tour de Yorkshire is an iOS game inspired by the Tour de France, which in 2014 is starting in Yorkshire, England.

You're a cyclist aiming to win the championship for Great Britain and team Leeds Bradford Airport. Your only problem: the four top international riders equally determined to reach the finish line first.

The gameplay involves an interesting mix of elements. Careful training first builds up your stamina so you're ready for the competition. Tapping the screen to pedal gets you on your way, though also wears you down over time. Swiping a good line through the corners helps to maintain your speed, though, and getting it exactly right will give you a much-needed energy boost.

There's real depth to the game, too. You get to decide your own training strategies. Nine competition tracks take you through city streets and gorgeous countryside. And even if you get tired of the main game, the option to set and beat your own records in the Time Trial mode should keep you entertained for a while.
