Experience the world on two wheels while raising vital funds for type 1 diabetes research.
Please note the first event taking place on 14 June 2014 is now sold out.
Join us for this exciting opportunity to cycle the very first stage of the 2014 Tour de France when it visits the UK. We are offering four distances to choose from. Cycle the entire stage including the neutral zone from Leeds Town Hall (131 miles), from Harewood where the timed race begins (118 miles), or a choice of two reduced versions from Kettlewell (85 miles) or Aysgarth (69 miles).
The weekend begins on Friday night where you’ll be welcomed to our accommodation base in the spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire for a pre cycle dinner before settling down for the night.
Saturday is Ride Day when an early breakfast will be served before departing to your start point in Leeds or Skipton (depending on your choice of distance). You will cycle throughout the day passing into the spectacular scenery of The Yorkshire Dales National Park, through the Dales into Wensleydale through Hawes. You’ll then head south through the Cathedral city of Ripon before finishing back in Harrogate.
The celebration dinner will be on Saturday night back at our accommodation base before a second night’s accommodation. Breakfast will be served on Sunday morning before everyone says farewell and makes their separate ways home.
We would be thrilled to welcome you onto Tour de Type 1 2014. In conjunction with our tour operator Classic Tours we are able to offer you two payment options:
