    I can't see a thread for this, but would love to go and watch some of the elite road races.

    Maybe train to Leeds, watch the depart, then cycle up to the 7-lap finishing circuit around Harrogate. Or watch the race pass through Skipton and then cycling to watch the finish at Harrogate...

    Is anyone else thinking about going ?

    Any Yorkshire locals with some advice on travel, accomodation, etc? @TM

  • Bizarrely I manage to miss both the TdY and the world champs this year as am away touring for both. There’s a few nice roads between skipton and Harrogate so that could be a good shout. If you want to find out what the non-knobhead cyclists of Leeds are doing in terms of viewing, join the Fixed Gear Leeds Facebook group, am sure they’ll be planning some rides out to catch the various points of the race and we’re very welcoming/inclusive in The North.

  • I'm in North Leeds probably for rest of the year so will definitely be going. I was checking hotels yesterday - thinking of volunteering - and Harrogate is 97% booked up already. (According to booking dot com)

    I guess York will be even more rammed than usual. My plan is ride in from Chapel Allerton (approx 14 miles to Harrogate).
