Tour de Yorkshire 2017 - FAQs

  • What is the Tour de Yorkshire?

A  UCI-approved 2.1 Europe Tour international cycle race that's becoming one of the biggest cycle races in the UK. First held in 2015 this is the thirs year the event will be run, an outstanding event in the international cycling calendar, with some of the top international teams taking part and a women's race on 29th April.  It will be broadcast live on TV in the UK and throughout Europe.

  • Who is organising the Race?

The race is being organised by Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) and Welcome to Yorkshire - supported by local authorities throughout Yorkshire.

  • Which roads will be closed?

Over the vast majority of the race route there will be rolling road closures.  This means sections of road will be closed for around 45 minutes  at a time.  The riders will have a police escort around the route to make the temporary closures. We are expecting the section that passes through craven to be managed by the rolling road closure which means disruption will be kept to a minimum in the district.

  • Are there any financial implications for CDC? 

No - as the race is passing through Craven with no start or finish in the district we have no event organising responsibilities. NYCC are responsible for the Highways and Welcome to Yorkshire the route.

  • What time does it all happen?

We are still waiting for the official timings to be released and once they are we will publicise these on our website.

  • Can I use the Tour de Yorkshire logo?

Only sponsors of the event can use the Tour de Yorkshire logo. For further details please visit http://letour.yorkshire.com/faqs .
