Le Tour de France

The Bridge Church welcomes Le Tour de France

The Road to Paris for approximately 200 riders in the world’s biggest cycling race, the Tour de France, will travel through Otley on Saturday 5th July as part of the first stage of the 2014 race.

Thousands of visitors are expected to come and see the event and television coverage will be beamed to an audience of over 3.5 billion people.

Otley is excited to not only be included on the route but to also be designated an official spectator hub and the town is looking forward to welcoming and entertaining visitors and making your visit a memorable and enjoyable experience.

The tour will enter Otley from the direction of Pool along Pool Road (A659).
The route continues along Cross Green, Boroughgate and Westgate before turning onto Ilkley Road at the Fleece pub.

The cyclists continue along Ilkley Road until they reach the A65 where they will turn right in the direction of Ilkley.

The Caravane is expected to arrive in Otley at 10:13 followed 2 hours later by the peloton at 12:13.

Here at the  Bridge   Church  we will be opening our premises for the day to serve the community by offering home made refreshments, hospitality and conveniences to locals and the many visitors expected in the town.  The event can also be watched in the comfort of our large hall on our very own large screen.
