The 2018 Tour de Yorkshire will see the race coming through our area again – twice!
The race starts in Beverley, East Yorkshire on Thursday 3rd May and comes through North Leeds on stage 2 on Friday 4th May passing through or close to Barwick in Elmet, Scholes, Thorner, Bardsey, East Keswick and Harewood. It then heads to finish this stage in Ilkley. Stage 4 starts in Bradford on Sunday 6th May and re-enters North Leeds at Bramhope, then passes by the back entrance of Golden Acre Park, on to Otley Road, West Park, passing past the abbey on Kirkstall Road, past Kirkstall Brewery then on to Stanningley before finishing in Leeds City Centre at the Town Hall. You can see the race maps on the Tour de Yokshire website here.
There’s a list of child-friendly cafes in North Leeds on Mumbler here, so why not watch the race then pop into one of our great local cafes for a drink and snack.
As in past years there are bound to be lots of surprises and excitement along the way. The 2016 Tour de Yorkshire saw Sir Bradley Wiggins unexpectedly pull out of the race on Greenhow Hill coming out of Pateley Bridge. One thing is certain though…Yorkshire will put on a good celebration! There was a huge turn out for the race last year, with local communities getting into the spirit of the day and putting on great events and fun activities.
