Harrogate Borough Council are hosting a huge Cycling event next September and intend to use the Stray for 9 days in total for this.
The stray has a clause that only allows a few days per year for events, our Trans - Pennine being one of those.
They have approached Central government to get this overturned for this year and if they refuse then it may well be at the expense of the Trans - Pennine on the Stray.
The Government have sent out a questionair asking for peoples views on this extension, we all should support this as that should secure our use of the Stray for the Trans - Pennine run
The limited edition full colour commemorative programme is still available for £4 including postage.
