The riders returned

Tour de Yorkshire in Barnsley was a fantastic success and saw an amazing day of community spirit and racing as the women's and men's race explored the borough.

The whole race took place between the 2 and 5 May 2019, with our borough hosting 'The World Stage' from Barnsley to Bedale on Friday 3 May.

Watch some of the memories of the day in our video, or take a look at our photo galleries from the 2019 and 2018 races.

The best of Barnsley cycling

Whether you're a keen cyclist looking for a cycle club, looking to get to work or school, or would simply like to learn to ride a bike for fun, Barnsley has a range of cycle services to help.

Cycling in schools

Active travel means using walking or cycling to get about. It's healthier and better for the environment too. Children who get exercise and fresh air on their way to school are more alert and attentive in class.

Learn to ride a bike

It's never too late to learn to ride a bike. There's various programmes available to help young people and adults develop the skills and confidence to ride safely.
