The Tour de Yorkshire 2018

Since its launch in 2015 the Tour de Yorkshire has grown to become one of the world’s most dramatic and best supported professional cycling races.

Stage two route of the Tour de Yorkshire will return to the Bradford District on Friday 4th May 2018! The final leg of the race will enter into Ilkley and finish at the Cow and Calf rocks. The famous landmark will also be the finish of the Women’s race on the same day.

If you don’t get to Ilkley you will have another chance to see the race again on Sunday 6th May when Stage four of the Tour De Yorkshire will see riders come through Oxenhope and the challenging climb at Haworth Main Street.

Every year this UCI Europe tour event takes in some of the county’s most spectacular scenery and attracts some of the most famous names in the sport. The fourth edition promises to be just as spectacular!
