Tour de France – Grand Départ – Food and Parking


Bradley Wiggins

There’s now a brand new Page on our web site – advertising the effort the village is making to support the “Grand Départ” on 5th July.

It’s going to be a MONUMENTAL event with HUGE consequences for the area – and everyone in it – both in the short, and long, term. It’s estimated that around 2 million people will be spread out along the route (from Leeds to Harrogate) on the day [ thats roughly the population of Greater Manchester or the whole of the Leeds/Bradford conurbation!! ]

It’s expected that up to 10,000 people will be gathered watching the event in Leyburns town square – both live and with the help of a huge screen.

SpectacleWith less than five weeks before the full impact of the event starts to take effect, it’s time to start thinking about how it will impact you, what you’ll be doing about it and how to make the most of it. [You’ll find it difficult to avoid – so why not take full advantage and ENJOY!]
