Members of Richhill WI in the Giro d'Italia mood today.

Richhill has turned pink for the arrival of the Giro d’Italia.

Hundreds of people, many in pink dress, have lined the streets to cheers on some of the world’s leading cyclists.

The main street is decorated with pink bunting and a dozen big flags with the Giro d’Italia motif adorning the main street.

The caravan will travel ahead of the cyclists and is expected to arrive in the village just before 10.30am, where it will be handing out freebies.

Richhill Improvements Association is hoping to have a piper, piping in the cyclists as they begin to arrive around 12.10pm, while two Lambeg drummers will provide a thunderous welcome as they cycle through the village.

The race has caught the imagination of thousands of people throughout Northern Ireland.
