Our slightly cycling bonkers web designer informs me that 2014 will bring Le Tour de France within 30 miles of Blakelow! Zut alors!!
On Sunday 6th July the 200+ racers will start Stage 2 of this formidable (French accent please!) from Holmfirth then they’ll climb up to Holme Moss and the roof of the Pennines, before heading over to Langsett and via Strines and High Bradfield before descending into Sheffield.
It’s the section after Langsett called Strines, and High Bradfield are she suggest pointing you to – on the edge of our stunning Peak District, Bradfield’s a lovely little South Yorkshire village with a medieval village church and a pub, but it’s the scenery that you really want to see. The riders will leave High Bradfield heading for Oughtibridge then onto Jawbone Hill … promises to be spectacular!
If you’re quick we still have a little Availability for that weekend … you could combine a luxury break in the Peak District with a little Vive la France! We’ve all sorts of facilities to help cyclists enjoy a holiday here – Cyclists welcome!
