Despite being subject to a national stereotype of being miserly and miserable, the people of Yorkshire have successfully proved their detractors wrong with the Tour de Yorkshire, a cycling event that has seized the baton from the Tour de France, which itself started in Leeds back in 2014. The event proved so popular that within the year, organisers had pulled together an event that now officially features on the UCI Europe Tour.
The Tour de Yorkshire Ride offers a unique mix of Tour de France delivery combined with Yorkshire hospitality and beauty resulting in a sportive dream day. This is your chance to ride many of the same roads as the pros before they do, including the pro finish line, complete with support from the waiting crowds. Please note: this event is an open road sportive.
