Yorkshire was selected as a direct result of Cycle England’s success in championing the county as a world-class cycle tourism destination in key foreign markets.    

Harrogate will be the main destination town for the annual conference and participants will visit other parts of the county during the four-day event, with many set to extend their stay and sample other local attractions once the main conference has concluded.  

Welcome to Yorkshire Chair Peter Box said:

“Yorkshire has shown time and again just what a fantastic location it is for hosting major conferences and events, and we’re thrilled that CycleSummit 2020 will be taking place in our county.

“The event will allow us to showcase Yorkshire as a world-class cycling destination once again and we’re confident it will lead to more cycle tour operators across the globe highlighting the county as an amazing place to visit.”

CycleSummit Project Manager Managing Director Heiko Riekenberg said:

“We’re delighted to be bringing CycleSummit 2020 to Yorkshire, and from visiting the county in preparation for the event, we know this going to be a very special summit. 

“Our event combines networking, workshops and a B2B marketplace, and we always look to host it in an interesting and inspiring cycling destination. Yorkshire certainly ticks those boxes and we couldn’t wish for a more suitable host town than Harrogate to base ourselves during the summit.”
