With the route of the 2019 UCI road world championships now released its time look forward and plan that ride or catch all the action to one of the greatest events in the cycling calendar. Having a base to stay and begin your adventure is a must and Walworth Castle is perfectly situated wherever your heading. Set 5 miles from Darlington town centre we have 32 bedrooms and can offer secure storage for your steed.
Situated a ride away from the hubs of Northallerton (20 miles – an hours steady ride) and Ripon (35 miles – an hour and a half) you can easily find yourself in the thick of the action cheering on your heroes. Which route you take and what you take in along the way is up to you! Quiet country lanes, spectacular scenery and climbs to kill for are not in short supply – but beware, choose your route carefully! For those of you that might enjoy something a little more challenging then why not head out to the route of the 2014 Tour de France and take in the men’s elite race in Reeth or on the climb or Grinton. The Dales bike centre in Fremington will be the place to stop and refuel and serves excellent cakes and coffee.
Our friendly team on reception will be only too pleased to print maps or assist you in any way.
Back up and support can be found at Wheelbase Darlington located six miles away, the perfect place for spares and anything cycling related!
