It’s that time of year again – the Tour de Yorkshire is set to return to Scarborough.

This year’s cycle race will be held over four days, commencing Thursday 3rd May and concluding on Sunday 6th May 2018.

Stage Three, which takes place on Saturday 5th May, is the one that will visit Scarborough twice and includes the exciting sprint finish.

The route follows a gruelling 181 km starting in Richmond and ending in Scarborough’s North bay.

Following sprints in the Yorkshire Dales and trips through the market towns of Northallerton and Thirsk, the cyclists will head into the North York Moors National Park including the steep and curvaceous Cote de Sutton Bank.

It will then head down to Helmsley before pedalling to Pickering for another sprint. The cyclists will follow the A170 and eventually tackle another climb at Cote de Silpho, after which the peloton will breeze through Scarborough for its first visit before heading to Filey, then will head back inland to Scarborough to the finish line.

The race is great for Yorkshire and Scarborough as it brings our lovely region to TV screens across the UK, Europe and beyond.
