Big Bike Bash 20th-21st June 2015
The ‘Big Bike Bash’, which is a joint venture between Harrogate Borough Council and Pennine Events, will take place in Harrogate on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June and will see cycling fever returning to the town a year after the district hosted the Tour de France Grand Départ.
The weekend’s programme will include a number of competitive and leisurely cycling events for both professional and amateur cyclists. A lively entertainment village will also be located on Harrogate’s famous Stray, next to the finish line of the first stage of the 2014 Tour de France.
On Saturday, a closed road circuit will be created around the town centre finishing with the same uphill sprint along Parliament Street, which marked victory for Marcel Kittel and disaster for Mark Cavendish.
The course will be opened to the public in the afternoon allowing cyclists to ride the route with its tight turns and climbs, before elite male and female teams from around the country compete in criterion races – multi-lap races, which offer the same excitement, thrills and possibly spills as last year’s Tour de France.
