The route, which will be the same for both the men’s and women’s races, will start in Bridlington and take in some of the most stunning Yorkshire coast and North York Moors locations before heading to the now legendary finish on Scarborough’s North Bay. Along the way it will make a return to Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby, two locations that have produced spectacular backdrops in previous editions of the race.
The challenging 132km stage, aptly named The Yorkshire Coast, will have five King of the Mountain climbs: Côte de Silpho, Côte de Hooks House Farm (Robin’s Hood Bay), Côte de Lythe Bank, Côte de Grosmont and Côte de Ugglebarnby. There will also be Sprints at Harwood Dale and Whitby Abbey.
NEW Course update: due to weather conditions, the finish in Scarborough has been altered slightly and will be the alternative one, as used in 2017. It’s still on Royal Albert Drive but roughly 500m before the "traditional" finish.
Please note: the men's race times are 15 minutes later than published due to an operational alteration.
To enjoy the Tour de Yorkshire to the full, planning ahead for the tour weekend will help you to see the race and stay safe. We would encourage you to walk or cycle where possible instead of driving to locations on the race route. For those that need to drive, the advice is to allow extra time for journeys and arrive early.
For car parking information go to scarborough.gov.uk/parking.
Spectators travelling to Whitby are advised to use North Yorkshire County Council’s park and ride service on the western approach to the town. A free shuttle bus, currently operating from the Abbey Headland car park, on our behalf, will be a good option for those driving from the south. Information about road closures and parking restrictions to allow for the race to pass through the area safely is available from northyorks.gov.uk/tour.
