Le Petit Depart

May 31 2020
Yorkshire, UK

A brand new cycle in 2014 that is on Sunday 4th June 2017. It celebrates the very best cycling the Yorkshire Dales has to offer and follows much of the Tour de France 2014 Stage 1 route. Starting from Skipton, Le Petit Depart offers two fantastic routes to cater for all abilities.  

This 38 mile route follows the 2014 Grand Depart route up and back down the magnificent Upper Wharfedale valley, stretching right up into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Riders then return via the stunning Bolton Abbey

The Sportive Ride is 80 miles over three climbs & follows much of the Tour de France stage 1 taking you over 3 climbs and along 6 dales. From the head of Wharfedale the route goes over Kidstones, the first official climb of the 2014 Tour de France. It continues along the Stage 1 route, returning to Skipton via the impressive Ribblehead viaduct, the quaint market town of Settle and the lovely Malhamdale.

This is a community based event, delivered by Craven District Council in partnership with Skipton Cycle Club. The first 3 events has raised £7500 for the club to support the clubs junior programme: Skipton Junior Riders and other cycling development in Skipton.
