Yorkshire- Where to stay to view 2014 Tour de France Stages 1 & 2?

Jump to last reply

With the success of Froome, Wiggins and Cavendish over the past several years, the Tour start in Yorkshire is calling my name. Loudly. I've been studying the stage route maps and the Sustrans website in an attempt to pinpoint a home base for our stay. We followed the race for two weeks in 2004 so I'm aware of the ins and outs of viewing the race but I'm not at all familiar with the area.

We'll likely arrive the weekend prior to the race start so we can sightsee, ride bikes and recover from jetlag before the masses arrive. Looking at the route map, I see that the race travels near Skipton on both days and I'm considering staying there based only on that information. Harrogate will be on the route both days but will be a zoo (first race day ends there and it's possible Cavendish will win there, made all the better as Harrogate is where his mother's home is apparently).

Based on the route map, where should we stay that will allow easy access to the race by bike? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/othersports/article-2263911/Tour-France-2014-route-Britain-revealed--MAP.html
