🚴🏻♂️🚴🏻♀️DON’T FORGET... the big bike race starts this weekend! 🚴🏻♀️🚴🏻♂️
I have mixed emotions about the event and have seen the many arguments on social media about the pros and cons. In my opinion, the bike race will be an amazing spectacle and great fun for cyclists, race enthusiasts, and the people of Harrogate who will enjoy the free entertainment! On the other hand, I’ve also seen the huge damage the event is going to cause for many local businesses and residents of Harrogate, especially those of us who rely on being able to easily travel around the town (dog walkers, carers, plasterers, electricians, childcare providers etc). Most of the dog walkers I know are taking the week off, the Harrogate walkers seem to have no choice, but us Knaresborough lot are concerned about traffic levels and being able to meet our time commitments. That being said, Katie & Co Dog Walking will run as normal (🤞🏻) with a limited service, meaning regular walks will run as normal but I will not be taking on any ADDITIONAL dogs or pet visits. We can’t predict how bad the traffic will be (or if it will be easy breezy as everyone will be either at the event or hiding at home!) but please bare with me if your pick up and drop off times are earlier or later than usual!
Thanks for reading and enjoy the event!! 🚴🏻♀️ 🚧🥇🍻🚴🏻♂️ #uciroadworldchampionship #UCI #uciroadworldchampionships #harrogate #harrogatelife #knaresborough #bikerace #yorkshire #northyorkshire #dogwalker #harrogateindies #dogsofharrogate
