The Tour De Yorkshire is back this April, as the world's best cyclists hit the street to battle it out to become winner of the third Tour De Yorkshire. Our lovely town of Harrogate has been chosen to host both the men’s and women’s finish of the race.

The cyclists will be doing a 122.5km route which will pass through Yorkshires stunning countryside passing through the local villages and towns along the way. With around 2 million spectators coming to watch in total these cyclists are under a lot of pressure especially as they reach the Cote de Lofthouse climb before reaching the finish line on Parliament Street which we saw Marcel Kittel in 2014 storm across the finish line minutes after Mark Cavendish’ crash.

So make sure you are there to join in the Atmosphere on Saturday 29th April and listen out to Stray FM on the day to keep up with all the going on’s and traffic closures.
