CAMPING AND GLAMPING OPTIONS
AS A MINIMUM ALL CAMPERS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SHOWERS, WATER POINT AND TOILETS.
Camping is free for all riders. Supporters will require a camping ticket each which will allow access to the campsites and use of the showers and toilets (including dedicated toilets for ladies). The Camp Sites are manned overnight and the site is covered by first aid crews for the entirety of the event.
For the Crossing we set up campsites at both Shap (Friday) and Northallerton (Saturday). All our camping packages cover both nights.
AT THE CROSSING WE HAVE CAMPING OPTIONS TO MEET ALL NEEDS
This area is designed for those that like to have their car right next to their tent with an electric supply from our site generators. A huge 6m x 6m marked out plot gives you the confidence that that you will get the space you want. We will run a night time generator curfew from 10.30pm in order to keep the site quiet overnight. Park and Pitch passes will be posted out pre-event. Please display these to the staff upon arrival to be directed to your pitch.
Campervans are welcome at The Crossing and should buy Park and Pitch. Please note your set up will need to fit inside the 6m x 6m dimensions of our Park and Pitch plots. If you need more space you will need to buy a second plot. We will run a night time generator curfew from 10.30pm in order to keep the site quiet overnight. Please note that this is a temporary site without the infrastructure available to accept any chemical toilet blue waste. WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCOMMODATE CARAVANS DUE TO THE SITE LAYOUT.
Supporters simply buy a camping pass, turn up with your kit and your car will be directed to the Supporters parking area. Then set up your tent in a spot you like the look of. Please respect the fire lanes and marshal instructions. Supporter Camping Passes will be posted out pre-event.
