Following on from the hugely successful Grand Depart in 2014, the Tour de Yorkshire is a legacy event and quickly becoming a high quality 3 day pro race attracting the biggest names in cycling. The Tour de Yorkshire Ride takes in the final stage on the morning of the race so you can ride the sportive, then watch the pros at the finish shortly after.
