TOUR DE FRANCE 2014
Yorkshire & London VIP Experiences
5th to 6th July 2014
With the Tour de France visiting Yorkshire for the 2014 Grand Depart and then moving on to Cambridge and London for the third stage of the 2014 Le Tour, as a VIP Tour Operator to the Tour de France, we have some incredible experiences available for you.
Stage 1 - Leeds to Harrogate
Our VIP Experiences for Le Grand Depart:
The first stage will be a fantastic opening to the 2014 Tour de France, with the start in Leeds, then up to Harewood and around the Yorkshire Dales until a sprint finish into Harrogate, which is also the home of Mark Cavendish's mum, so can Cav take the stage win for his first ever Yellow Jersey of the Tour de France? We think probably! For this stage we have a number of exciting opportunities for you.

You will start on the line before the caravan departs. What an incredible experience this will be. This is only available for a group of 25 riders.
