Are you ready for the Tour de Yorkshire?

As the excitement builds for the first ever Tour de Yorkshire, we’d like to just remind you how very close the Tour de Yorkshire comes to The Black Swan Hotel in Helmsley.

Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd May 2015 will see the new 2.1 Europe Tour world-class cycle race take place across Yorkshire including parts of the county that the momentous Yorkshire Grand Départ didn’t visit. The format will see three full stages take place over the three days, with the first stage passing through Pickering, just 14 miles from Helmsley, on the first day.

Sir Bradley Wiggins and Marcel Kittel have been confirmed as two of the stars who will take part in the first ever Tour de Yorkshire. The 2012 Tour de France winner will lead his own Team WIGGINS developmental squad while the German sprinter will return to Yorkshire a year after wearing the first yellow jersey in Harrogate at the Tour de France 2014.

If you’d like to get up close and watch first hand this historic cycle race then we’re pleased to say that we do still have rooms available on Thursday 30th April and Friday 1st May.
