We will never forget the 2014 Grand Depart on our roads in Yorkshire.

An event that caught the attention of the entire nation and really hammered home how big cycling in the UK is today.

From the immense build up of all the yellow bikes on our roads to the scenes on the day its an event that even the French were amazed to see!

As the millions joined at the road side we together created a day that will never be forgotten.

Again this year, the Ripon Tour Sportive will give you a unique opportunity to relive the memories with 1,000s of cycling fans and ride on the now hallowed roads from stage 1 of the 2014 Tour de France. From the climbs, still covered in riders names, to the fast descents and beautiful villages, this Sportive brings you as close to the Tour route as you are going to get.

For riders of all abilities, with great support on well-signed routes so you cant get lost, the Ripon Tour Sportive is a must do event for any serious cycling fan.
