Personally, I think you'd be mad to go anywhere near the Dales during the Tour de France over the weekend of 5/6 July. Road closures, traffic queues, inflated prices and more people than there have ever been before.  You won't be able to fly a number of our sites due to airspace restrictions either.  Just to be absolutely clear the following sites are out of bounds:

Sat 5 Jul
1045-1215: Baildon, Ilkley, Addingham, Cowling
1130-1245: Kilnsey, Windbank, Hawkswick, Kettlewell, Cow Close Fell, Great Whernside, Bishopdale
1200-1445: Bishopdale, Addleborough, Nappa Scar, Stags Fell, Semer Water, Wether Fell, Dodd Fell

Sun 6 Jul
1015-1230: Addingham, Ilkley, Cowling, Baildon
1115-1400: Nont Sarahs, Pule

If you can find somewhere to fly check the restrictions in detail before going XC, otherwise you'll have 3.5 billion witnesses to you mixing it with the 7 helicopters overflying the route. The CAA will prosecute any infringements with fines of up to £3,000.
