Key Locations For Tour de Yorkshire Confirmed

Tour de Yorkshire


The key start and finish line locations for the first ever Tour de Yorkshire international cycle race next year have been confirmed.

As we reported last week Scarborough has been confirmed as one of the six locations along with Bridlington, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York.

The new UCI-approved 2.1 Europe Tour race will be held on 1-3 May and is expected to become the flagship cycling event in the UK in 2015 attracting the world's top teams.

Full details of the exact route, including the role that Scarborough will play, are to be revealed on January 21st, 100 days before the race itself.

The Grand Départ of the Tour de France in 2014 generated over £100m for the Yorkshire economy and organisers, Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) and Welcome to Yorkshire, are confident the new race will also help local businesses.

Cycling fanatics will have the opportunity to pave the way for the pro riders before the final stage of the race as a mass sportive event will be held on 3 May. Three distances and a women only Cycletta will also take place.
