Tour de Yorkshire circuit from Skipton

Get a flavour of how the pros feel with this superb two-night cycling holiday on the route of the 2014 Grand Depart of the Tour de France. With more than 120 miles of cycling over two days and with 3,400m of ascent and descent on some of Yorkshire’s most iconic climbs, this is not for the faint-hearted!

The trip is based in Skipton in homely B&Bs or plush hotels, and takes in a route very similar to the Tour de France. While some of the main roads on the original route have been changed to quieter roads, the majority of the route is just as Mark Cavendish and Chris Froome would have cycled on in 2014.
