The Tour de Yorkshire is an international cycling event, attracting participants and spectactors from around the world!  With beautiful scenery of Yorkshire and plenty of spectator spots this thrilling event makes a fantastic day out. This year, the spectacular finale will be in Leeds!

The Tour de Yorkshire returns in May having been upgraded in status and continuing to grow in size and scale, this year encompassing all four corners of the county and takes in 150 villages, towns and cities along the way.

Day one sees the riders tackle 178.5km from Doncaster to Selby, followed by 132 kilometres on day two from Barnsley to Bedale which includes some of the roads and Harrogate circuit to be used later in the year for the UCI Road World Championships.

Day three sees the peloton in action in and around the coastline, carrying out a 132km loop from Bridlington to Scarborough. The event finale is again set to be a classic stage, taking on some of the most well-known climbs in the region as the final day challenges the riders over 175km from Halifax before the dramatic climax in front of massive crowds on The Headrow in Leeds city centre.

On May 3-4 the Asda Tour de Yorkshire Women’s Race also takes place, breaking new ground with both stages following the same route as the men on the same days. And for any spectators inspired to have a go themselves, the Tour de Yorkshire Ride sportive takes place for a fifth successive year in 2019, starting and finishing in Leeds.
