Grand Départ - Yorkshire Tour Challenge

What's on offer?

In 2014 the Tour de France, one of the most famous and gruelling sporting events in the world, makes its Grand depart from Leeds in Yorkshire.

This amazing one day challenge allows you to ride the route of the first stage, from Leeds to Harrogate, the day before the Tour starts! What’s more you’ll have the opportunity to see the Grand Départ the following morning, cheering the world’s best cyclists onto the route you will have already conquered.


Day 1: Arrive Leeds. Carb-loading dinner and briefing.
Day 2: 120-mile ride following the route of Stage 1* from Leeds to Harrogate; big BBQ party to celebrate.
Day 3: Watch the start of the Tour de France - incredible atmosphere!

* route will deviate from Tour de France Stage to avoid busy A-roads
