    Tour de Yorkshire 2020 – Dates and Route have now been released

    The men’s 2020 Tour de Yorkshire will run from April 30th to May 3rd, with the women’s race taking place on 1st and 2nd May. Thanks to “Welcome to Yorkshire” and the “Amaury Sport Organisation” who organise the event.

    Not only has Yorkshire been voted as one of the best places to visit in the world by Lonely Planet, it is also proud to continue its, now, annual tradition of the Tour de Yorkshire. Over 2 million cycling fans will soon be lining the streets of Yorkshire to cheer on the riders taking on this enormous challenge.

    Here at Yurtshire we are in the heart of the Tour de Yorkshire – if you are looking for somewhere to be based while you follow the tour, spectate a stage, or ride a stage, then Yurtshire is the ideal spot. After a long day spectating or cycling, you can relax in your own private Hot Tub taking in the beauty of the Yorkshire dales.

    Stage one of the men’s cycling race will be Beverley to Redcar, taking in the climbs of Hooks House Farm and Lythe Bank.

    Skipton hosts the start of stage two of the men’s race and stage one of the women’s, with riders tackling the infamous Buttertubs and Grinton Moor – both climbs were removed from the men’s World Championship road race last year because of the weather so it will be interesting to see how the riders fair.

    Stage three for the men’s race begins in Barnsley and finishes in Huddersfield.The final day of the women’s race will follow a similar course but will be 20km shorter due to UCI regulations.

    The final stage four, known as the “Yorkshire Classic” runs from Halifax to Leeds featuring the most climbing of any Tour De Yorkshire stage in its history. The 177.5Km route with 3,304m of climbs encompasses Goose Eye. Barden Moor, Skyreholme, Lofthouse, Greenhow Hill, Cow and Calf and Otley Chevin.
