Tour de France Yorkshire

The greatest event in 2014 : Le Tour Elland

The Tour de France Elland

The most exciting event to hit Yorkshire and Elland & District in many years, is the “Grand Depart” where the Tour de France is spending 2 days of the Tour passing through Yorkshire.  This is a great privilege for the county and for the town, and is a tribute to the efforts of “Welcome to Yorkshire”.

We are fortunate to have several very knowledgeable cycling enthusiasts living in the town, and they have already formed a working group – Le Tour Elland 2014 – which includes several local traders, campsite operators, etc to fully exploit the commercial and social opportunities, many of which might otherwise pass us by.  Details of their meetings and plans are given on the following links.
