Tour de Yorkshire 2016

le tour de Yorkshire cycle race will be passing through Nidderdale in 2016. It won’t affect any of our fixtures as the race comes through our area on the afternoon of Friday 29th April – it comes from Knaresborough, loops through the centre of Ripley, then heads up to Burnt Yates and Brimham Rocks before dropping down into Pateley Bridge and on to Grassington. On the Saturday it’s in South / West Yorkshire.  For all your le tour needs, check out their website http://letour.yorkshire.com/

Tour de Yorkshire
The Tour de Yorkshire operates on a roiling road block of 15-20 minutes, so the disruption isn’t nearly as great as it was for the Tour de France.

Harrogate is due to get a start or finish in 2017 so we need to watch out for that.

There will be an informal meeting on Thursday 7th January from 6pm at the NEW offices of Nidderdale Plus, Station Square, King Street, Pateley Bridge HG3 5AT, to find out more and to explore opportunities to benefit from the occasion, and you are welcome to attend.

If you wish to attend, please let Mel Welch know via mwelch@sportnidderdale.org
