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. The 2020 route starts and finishes in Leeds and heads up to the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. This is one of the great long weekends of cycling in a stunning part of the UK.
On the Saturday head over to watch the third stage and then after the ride on Sunday watch the sprint finish in Leeds over the route you have just done.
Join our 60km Saturday guided warm up ride on the quiet lanes on the edge of the Dales and then hit the main climbs of the region on Sunday. The Yorkshire Dales is one of the most beautiful and famous cycling regions in the country and a must for all riders.
Taking in part of the final stage the morning before the pros, the Tour de Yorkshire Ride mixes the pro race experience and one the best riding locations in the UK to make it one of the most popular sportives in the country.
