To celebrate the 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ in Yorkshire Wiggle have announced that they will be hosting a very special, limited capacity event the weekend before the Tour starts, with riders covering the first two stages of the TdF. Starting from the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, riders will follow fully signposted courses covering approximately 80% of the Tour de France routes the professionals will ride a week later avoiding only the busy A-Roads. Riders will be electronically timed to see how they fare against the best cyclists in the world.
Riders will also enjoy support worthy of the pro-peloton with mobile on-course mechanical support, well stocked feed stations and nutrition products plus a post ride massage and a hot meal at the finish line. Wiggle describe the course as ‘extremely challenging’ with more than 300km of cycling over two days taking in the best of the Yorkshire Countryside and all the key leg burning climbs in the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District.
Spaces in the event are strictly limited to 200 riders with Accommodation and Ride Only options available. Package prices start at £149 for Stage 1, rising to £599 for the ‘Yellow Jersey Package’, which includes both stages, all meals and two night’s luxury accommodation.
