Yorkshire - UK's rainbow county
Since hosting the Tour de France Grand Depart in 2014, Yorkshire has continued to embrace with passion and unbridled enthusiasm, cycling in all its forms to establish Yorkshire as the UK's premier cycling destination. On VéloRoo's 9 day Yorkshire Road World Championship holiday you will not miss any stage or the epic roads in striking landscapes that Yorkshire is becoming known for! You dont want to miss this.
Come and see the Rainbow!
From stunning landscapes of soft rolling hills and panoramas of lush green farmland criss-crossed by dry stone walls, to the remote ruggedness of its moorlands, Yorkshire delivers a wealth of bio-diversity. We haven’t even mentioned the charming villages yet!
And with a spectacular range of competitive parcours, Yorkshire will produce some of the most iconic moments of Road World Championships history. For nine days, the best male and female riders from around the globe will compete for national pride and personal glory in the fight to wear the coveted Rainbow Jersey.
There has never been a better time or place to witness the determination, competition and emotion across so many cycling disciplines. Para-Cycling, Junior (U18), Under 23 and Elite, Women and Mens events – the best of the best.
