Tour de Frack 28th April 2017

On Friday 28th April the Tour De Frack cycle ride will be cycling through Hovingham (12.40hrs), passing Slingsby, Amotherby (13.15hrs), Great Barugh (13.30hrs) and on to the Kirby Misperton Protection Camp (14.20hrs). The purpose of the ride is to raise awareness about the impact on the enjoyment of cycling and tourism in this region with the increase in HGVs on rural roads and industrialisation from fracking.

There is the opportunity for interested local cyclists to join the peloton as riders complete the final leg of a 2 day ride, starting at the site in Lancashire where approval to frack has been granted, and finishing at the Kirby Misperton Protection Camp in Ryedale where the Tour de Yorkshire will ride past a few hours later.
