An abundance of cycle paths and mountain biking routes are available nearby including the charming purpose made Grizedale Forest. Christian Prudhomme, Tour de France director, said: "When we build the route of Le Tour, we look at both sporting aspects and the beauty of the route. I knew Yorkshire was a nice region but I didn't imagine it corresponded so well to what we need for a perfect Grand Depart" We are in a perfect location for cyclists and are happy to help you plan the best routes to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside.
