Shibden Hall will host two cycling events next weekend as the build up to next year’s Tour de France continues.

The Lister Lion Cyclo Cross takes place on Saturday, September 14 and will feature races for all ages and from beginners to seasoned riders.

There will also be bike demos, a training session by Huddersfield Star Wheelers, a roller racing competition and refreshments.

Then on Sunday, the Sibden Spinner will see around 400 riders cycle either 40 miles or 90 miles starting on the Shibden Estate and eventually joining the route for the 2014 Grand Depart.

Both events are part of this year’s South Pennines Walk and Ride Festival, which runs from 7-22 September.
