Then visit Stage Three of the Tour de Yorkshire (Wakefield to Leeds)!

Stage Three will see the peloton make a return to some of the roads raced in the 2014 Yorkshire Grand Départ of the Tour de France, only with a twist.


Starting in Wakefield, riders will travel south to Barnsley before heading to Holmfirth(13.24pm) where they pick up the Grand Depart route in reverse, racing to, Meltham  (13.31pm), Slaithwaite (13.45pm) and  Ripponden (14.13pm) before riding the iconic Cragg Vale (14.34pm) which in the Tour de France was the country’s longest continual climb and now becomes the longest continual descent! The riders will then make their way to Hebden Bridge, Oxenhope and through the famous cobbled streets of Haworth, one of the most iconic images of the Tour de France in Yorkshire. After a steep climb at Goose Eye the riders will once again see Ilkley, with the famous climb up the Cow & Calf before a sprint point at Arthington and then what is expected to be a hugely popular finish line in Roundhay Park in Leeds.


Road Closures -  Most will be rolling road closures lasting no more than an hour, apart from the start and finish lines and some climbs where the road closures will be longer. Road closures will be managed by the police and will be announced nearer the race weekend.
