Accommodation available for TdF in Richmond, Yorkshire

Hiya

Due to a friend canceling we have an awesome apartment available for 4 nights in Richmond, Yorkshire Thurs 3rd - Mon 7th July.

£230 gets you an apartment on the 3rd floor of a 3-apartment listed property with massive enclosed garden, offroad parking, secure bike storage in the large garage, right in the centre of Richmond and only a few miles from Reeth/Grinton where the 3rd climb of day 1 passes by at 3pm.

Or you can choose the double-bed or two twin bed apartment on the ground floor, the choice is yours. Our other party is happy to swap one for the other.

Come for all 4 days or just 1-2. But it's £230 regardless.

Possibly the perfect place for families. Fab indoor heated pool complex and theatre at the Richmond Station down the hill, and load of things to do in the town and area. Richmond Castle (English Heritage) and the river Swale to swim in. Large Co-Op supermarket over the road. Pub 50m up driveway.

Not suitable for a bunch of rowdy pissheads, in case that was your thinking. We stay here every year and it's a great place with a very nice old bloke who owns/runs it living on-site.

We are also riding the first stage 90km/1400m climbing from Skipton up to Reeth, leaving at 6am on the Saturday to catch the closed road and beat the caravan back to Reeth where the road is closed to the public at noon. Reeth/Grinton is the final climb of the day, caravan at 1pm, riders due at 3pm. You are quite welcome to join us in the car, we'll be doing a relaxed-ish pace around the 21-22k/hr mark. Unless everyone's feeling fresh Smile

Please drop me a message ASAP if you are interested.

Cheers

Mike
