Overview & description
This cycling tour features a 4 night stay with 3 day rides that showcase the incredible variety of roads and scenery in Yorkshire. Heading in a different direction each day, you will ride sections of the Tour de France 2014 route as well as other undiscovered roads that both inspire and challenge.
Accommodation is based in the lovely town of Ilkley, a location which is simply a gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. When the Tour de Yorkshire cycled through the town in 2015, the TV commentators described Ilkley as the ‘capital of cycling in Yorkshire’. The town boasts the largest cycling club in the country where almost 10% of the population are members!
You will stay at the Wheatley Arms which sits just below the Cow and Calf rocks. There are twelve gorgeous bedrooms including loft rooms and generously sized suites. All with luxurious bathrooms and some with roof top terraces and rolling views over Wharfedale and the famous Ilkley Moor. The Wheatley has consistently received excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and has the TripAdvisor ‘Certificate of Excellence’. It also takes pride in using many local suppliers for food and drink, including craft beer on draught produced by the two well respected breweries in Ilkley.
Prior to each ride there will be a briefing on the next day’s ride showing the map, the profile and the key climbs. Prior to departing each day, the team mechanic will be available to check the bikes. Carefully chosen lunch stops at top cycling cafes will feature on every ride.
