Tour de Yorkshire 2018
Posted on 14th April 2018 at 11:08
It’s that time of year again – the Tour de Yorkshire is set to return to parts of Ryedale.
This year’s cycle race will be held over four days, commencing Thursday 3rd May and concluding on Sunday 6th May 2018.
Stage Three which takes place on Saturday 5th May, is the one that will visit parts of Ryedale. The route follows a gruelling 181 km starting in Richmond and finishing in Scarborough.
Following sprints in the Yorkshire Dales and trips through the market towns of Northallerton and Thirsk, the cyclists will head into the North York Moors National Park including the steep and curvaceous Cote de Sutton Bank, which as we know is bad enough if tackling it as a driver of a vehicle!
