Le Tour - Richmond Yorks spectator access with kids?

by KiwiMike   June 7, 2014  

Hi all

Can anyone please advise what plans are in place for spectators to get from Richmond to Reeth for stage 1?

Is the road going to be closed, or have a lower speed limit at all? Or is the Reeth road going to turn into the world's biggest traffic jam?

Are there going to be shuttle buses from Richmond?

We will have three children with us, and aren't keen to fight 60MPH traffic up the valley if possible.

What about parking at Catterick? I understand Wathgill road is closed, but on the map, it doesn't say if the closure continues all the way to Reeth.

Any and all advice welcome. Really surprised that a month out, info like this isn't available easily online.
