Yorkshire's highlights

Tour de Yorkshire

In 2014 Yorkshire showed the world that our county was made for cycling as the best known names in the sport lined up for the Tour de France Grand Départ. Yorkshire’s beautiful scenery provided the perfect backdrop to a captivating weekend of cycling. In fact, the race was such a success that the sport’s governing body, the UCI, have now confirmed a major new international cycle race… the Tour de Yorkshire. The first Tour de Yorkshire will take place in May 2015 and will once again showcase our county’s breath-taking landscape to a global audience.
