Advance travel warning, Tour de France - 5,6th July in York

Most of you will know by now that the Tour de France is coming to Yorkshire in July and specifically to York on Sunday 6th July.

My advice is to avoid any car travel into York city centre from midday on Saturday 5th until Monday 7th July. The council are beginning a systematic closure of many roads on Saturday ready for the riders on Sunday and you will either be not allowed to come into the centre or get in but then be stuck in car parks due to not being able to get out due to closed roads !!

Also - trains in and out of York on that weekend will be hugely busy as will all hotels - who will do their usual rip-off act and hike prices up to an indecent level to take advantage of those who want to visit York to view the action.

One other thing - the train companies are telling people not to bring bicycles by train to York and other areas of Yorkshire as there will be limited space for cycles because of the huge crowds expected to travel to the various TdeF Yorkshire stages
