STAGE ONE VISITS WHITBY ON FRIDAY 28TH APRIL 2017
Whether you like getting around on two wheels or four, the Tour de Yorkshire is one heck of a tough race!
With three gruelling stages, Stage One visits Whitby on Friday 28th April 2017.
This year, there’s an exciting sprint section in the town with the historic Abbey in full view!
The event also coincides with the May Day Bank Holiday weekend, so it's the ideal time to enjoy some Riviera Guest House hospitality.
If you want to see the race in all its glory, the competitors are due in Whitby at around 3.50pm.
The race approaches Whitby via Ruswarp Lane before joining Mayfield Road, proceeding along Bagdale, along Station Square and New Quay Road, over the River Esk, heading along Church Street before making its way out of Whitby along Green Lane.
Stage One is due to finish in Scarborough’s North Bay anytime from 4.45pm.
There will be some road closures in place for the event.
