Rapha have announced a new cycling festival, the Rapha Tempest, to be held in the heart of North Yorkshire during this year’s Tour de France Grand Départ.
The Rapha Tempest, named after the family who own the Broughton Hall Estate where the festival, will be hosted over four days, 3 – 6 July 2014.
It’s set to be a celebration of road cycling, where you’ll be able to partake in guided rides and racing, bespoke on-site camping, visual displays, music, food and drink, workshops, films and plenty of partying.
What you can expect at Rapha Tempest
- Daytime and evening guided rides
- Mini Rapha Super Cross (cyclocross)
- Bike Parking and Rider Recovery Zone
- Rapha Cycle Club
- Music and DJs
- Open-air cinema
- Workshops and talks
- Stage and big screens
- Partner stalls and installations
Cycling fans will even be able to pootle to watch the Tour de France in person as Stage 1 is just three miles and Stage 2 is nine miles away from the festival site.
And, when the pro line up has whizzed past, you can retreat to camp to watch the remaining parts of the stage on big screens that will be showing live and highlight footage throughout the weekend.
There will be bike parking and a rider recovery zone where you can drop your bike off to be washed after riding in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Broughton Hall Estate is a familiar venue to Rapha, having hosted the first round of the Rapha Super Cross Series for the last two years.
Tickets start from £85, with a range of tailored packages available for camping and participation in some of the activities on offer.
