Tour de Yorkshire 1st-3rd May

Tour de Yorkshire will be making its way around Yorkshire between 1st – 3rd May. The first stage will be finishing on the Scarborough seafront.


Stage One will start in seaside town of Bridlington and 174km later finish further up the coast in Scarborough. The riders, from all over the world, will pass through spectacular coastal scenery and the iconic North York Moors landscapes. From the start line in Bridlington the riders will head along the Flamborough Head Heritage Coast before turning away from the coast into the North York Moors National Park, through Dalby Forest and towards Pickering. They’ll then take a spectacular journey back to the coast at Whitby, and then south to Robins Hood’s Bay with the ultimate race to the finish line on the seafront at Scarborough.

Stage Two will see the race start outside the imposing Selby Abbey. The route takes in much of the Yorkshire Wolds, and from Selby will take the peloton towards Market Weighton, through North Newbald and on to Beverley, where they will turn north to Malton, then on to Stamford Bridge. Spectators will have the change to see a circuit of York and organisers are hoping for a dramatic finish in the town. And as part of the legacy of the Tour de Fance to get more women cycling there will also be a dedicated women’s event on a circuit through York on day 2, the 2nd May.

Stage Three will see the peloton make a return to some of the roads raced in the 2014 Yorkshire Grand Depart of the Tour de France, only with a twist, starting in Wakefield, riders will travel south to Barnsley before heading to Holmfirth where they pick up the Grand Depart route in reverse, racing to Ripponden before riding the iconic Cragg Vale – which in the Tour de France was the country’s longest continual climb and now becomes the longest continual descent. The riders will then make their way to Hebden Bridge, Oxenhope and through the famous cobbled streets of Haworth, one of the most iconic images of the Tour de France in Yorkshire. After a steep climb at Goose Eye the riders will once again see Ilkley, with the famous climb up the Cow & Calf before a sprint point at Arthington and then what is expected to be a hugely popular finish line in Roundhay Park in Leeds.
