The 2018 edition of the annual road race is unfolding, promising a spectacular few days of thrills and hills as the world's elite cyclists saddle up.

3rd - 6th May

Tour de Yorkshire

Helping bring world-class cycling to Yorkshire

Firmly established on the world cycling calendar, the race attracts some of the best riders on the planet.

Following the phenomonel success over the last three years, Welcome to Yorkshire and the Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O.) have increased the Tour by one stage each for the men's race (3 to 4) and the women's race (1 to 2). With 8 start and finish locations, this year's route appeals to a wide spectrum of elite riders - both sprinters and attackers.

This year, we're delighted to be the official sponsor of the General Classification blue leader's jersey for the men's and women's races. Our partnership is shared between Yorkshire Bank and Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries, giving us the opportunity to showcase the fantastic work that the Bike Libraries do across the communities of Yorkshire, in association with Cycle Yorkshire.
