Tour de Yorkshire - 28 to 30 April 2017

The Tour de Yorkshire is one of the biggest cycle races in the UK. This year it takes place from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 April, with the men’s race held over three stages – one per day – and a women’s race on Saturday 29 April. The three stages are as follows: stage 1 starts in Bridlington and finishes in Scarborough; stage 2 starts in Tadcaster and finishes in Harrogate; stage 3 starts in Bradford and finishes at Fox Valley, Sheffield.

For the most part, there will only be rolling road closures lasting no more than an hour. Road closures will be managed by the police. The expected timings for each stage have been published by the organisers here.
