The ancient centre is filled with shops, cafes and restaurants, while the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Studley Royal Park and Fountains Abbey is just three miles away. Its ease of accessibility and range of hospitality outlets makes it another exceptional host, and the rolling roads which surround it will make for spectacular time trialling.
