Wensleydale Railway offers Tour de Yorkshire park and ride

Wensleydale Railway is offering a park and ride service for the Tour de Yorkshire.

Cycling enthusiasts can park at Leeming Bar and get the train to Bedale Station  to watch the riders race to the line for the finish of the third stage on May 3.

Trains will also run from Leyburn, picking up in Leyburn and Finghall (if requested), to Leeming Bar.

Rebekah Jerram, from Wensleydale Railway, said: “We are offering a park and ride service from Leeming Bar to Bedale multiple times throughout the day.

“This is a very convenient way to visit Bedale as it’s only a six-minute train journey and a five-minute walk from Bedale Station to the town centre.

“We are also offering a park and ride service from Redmire to Leeming Bar so people wanting to travel from further up the Dale to the event are able.”

Fares are £5 for the Leeming Bar park and ride service and £8 for the Redmire/Leyburn run.
