TDY 2018: Where To Watch

Last year we were lucky enough to have the Tour de Yorkshire pass right through Shipley.  This year you’ll need to travel a little bit further to catch a glimpse of the race.

The Race

The race publicity caravan usually passes through 1-2 hours before the cyclists. It’s a spectacle not to be missed, made up of motercycle outriders and brands and sponsors in specially decorated vehicles. Last year, I think it was my nearly 2 year olds favourite bit – as well as the helicopters.

All race times are approximate (based on fastest estimate). Please visit the Tour De Yorkshire website for further details and live updates.
