Back in 2014, Yorkshire played host to one of the world's biggest sporting events as the Tour de France came to town.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of that memorable Grand Départ, and to celebrate Struggle Events are laying on a special sportive: the Legacy Ride.

Taking place on Sunday 7 July 2024, Legacy Ride offers cyclists a chance to relive the 2014 stage in full - all 230 glorious km of it.

Event HQ is at Roundhay Park in Leeds.

The 230km route will test even the toughest cyclists, but two shorter options are also on offer, with 120km and 70km routes designed to "treat every aspiring rider to the best of God's Own County by bike."

Take on Yorkshire's Tour route with Legacy Ride on 7 July.

The long course includes the iconic Yorkshire climbs of Cote de Buttertubs Pass and Cote de Grinton Moor. Riders on the shorter routes won't escape lightly with Cote de Skyreholme, Pot Bank and Norwood Edge lying in wait.

The event will raise funds for the Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease Appeal as well as the MND Association.

Entries are open now, priced £59 for the 230km route, £49 for the 120km and £39 for the 70km distance.

Entry includes feed stations on the route, electronic chip timing with results available at the finish, and a finishers village selling traditional French fare - well, beer and burgers anyway - to help you recover.

But be quick - there are a limited number of places remaining for what promises to be a highlight of the summer!
