Leeds to Harrogate

From the ceremonial start of the race in Leeds to the official start of the race in Harewood, the first day of Yorkshire’s spectacular Grand Départ passes through Otley, Ilkley, Skipton, Kettlewell, Aysgarth, Hawes, Leyburn, Middleham, Jervaulx, Masham and Ripon on its way to Harrogate, taking in many other villages and hamlets in the Yorkshire Dales, and the famous Buttertubs pass.

Please note the route from Leeds to Harrogate is as close to the Grand Départ 2014 race route as possible, but there may be some minor changes for safety reasons, for example where one-way systems dictate.
