Tour de Yorkshire 2018

Come and join us

On Friday 4 May 2018, we'll be playing host to the biggest and best cycle race in Yorkshire.

The second leg of the fourth edition of this fantastic race will see both the men’s Tour de Yorkshire and the ASDA Women’s Tour de Yorkshire start outside the historical town hall, before heading through the borough and out towards neighbouring Rotherham.

En route

Starting in Barnsley town centre, the riders will make their way through the borough, passing some of our best known visitor attractions including Cooper Gallery, Worsbrough Mill and Elsecar Heritage Centre.

The Barnsley section of the race has one classified climb ‘Côte de Blacker Hill’, which will challenge riders to a steep incline and sharp bends as they ascend towards Hoyland.


The 'In Gear' souvenir book features stories and photos from last year's race. It captures the excitement of the event and can help with ideas if you're planning a celebration to mark the occasion.

Ways to get involved

Public transport

We're currently working with public transport partners to establish the impact of the race on day services. We'll publish this in due course.

If you have any concerns or queries in the meantime, please email Tour de Yorkshire.

Road closures

We'll do all we can to minimise disruption to residents and businesses along the race route. However, a rolling programme of road closures will be necessary to allow this fantastic event to take place. Here's a list of affected areas and times.

If you have any queries please email Tour de Yorkshire.
