TOUR DE YORKSHIRE

pie

bespoke guided rides

pie is a cycling events company delivering amazing bespoke bike rides throughout the UK and Europe. We create, develop, manage, operate and deliver fully supported guided group cycling trips for companies, charities and groups of individuals.  All to your specific brief.

We will be on the trail of the professional cyclists as we pick up the highlights of the 2014 Tour de France through the amazing Yorkshire Dales countryside and try our luck on climbs like the infamous Buttertubs. Along the way there will be empty roads, rolling hills, stunning scenery, impressive food and, of course, amazing cycling!

We will be based for 3 days in Harrogate. Harrogate was a host town of the Tour de France in 2014 and was also the main host of the UCI World Road Championships – there is huge cycling history here.

Yorkshire is the largest county in the UK. Harrogate nestles between the Yorkshire Moors National Park to the east and the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west. As the Tour de France did, we will be concentrating our attention on the Dales.
