It’s estimated that three million people will watch the Tour de France in Yorkshire, and the Dare 2b Yorkshire Festival of Cycling is a much better alternative to elbowing your way around a field near Ripon. The three-day event takes place at Harewood House near Leeds, with the peloton steaming through the middle of the estate.
You can camp (or glamp), or just come for a day or two. There will be guided rides to other vantage points on the route, live music, film screenings, inspiring talks and a host of cultural entertainment. There’s a massive cycling and outdoor expo planned, complete with giant screens showing all cycling action (as well as the World Cup Quarter Finals). You might even bump into Olympic heroes Lizzie Armitstead and the Brownlee brothers, who are official festival ambassadors.
We’ve teamed up with the organisers to offer three standard eight-person camping packages. Each includes three nights on a 10 square metre grass camping pitch.
For your chance to win simply send your name and contact details on a postcard to Living North, Studio 2, St Nicholas Chare, Newcastle NE1 1RJ or use our online competition form here. Please mark your entry FESTIVAL OF CYCLING. All entries to be received by 10th June.
