It has been announced that the Le Petit Depart cycling sportive event will be back for its seventh year on Sunday 5th June 2022, celebrating some of the very best of cycling in the Yorkshire Dales.

The event is run by volunteers from the Skipton Cycling Club and has a proven track record, having been attended by more than 3400 cyclists in previous years.

After two years off due to the COVID19 pandemic, organisers are aiming to once again pull out all the stops to deliver another memorable cycling celebration through the spectacular countryside of the Yorkshire Dales.

Participating cyclists have the choice of two fantastic routes, both starting and finishing at the Craven Cattle Mart in Skipton. These are as follows:

The event will raise vital funds for the Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope to help provide expert care for local people who are living with life-limiting conditions, as well as helping support their families.

The Bruce Dinsmore Team Challenge trophy will be awarded to the team with the best average speed, in memory of the former Skipton Cycling Club member who was instrumental in founding Le Petit Depart.
