Roadshow announced

Organised by Welcome to Yorkshire and Yorkshire 2019 to help businesses and community groups on the UCI Road World Championship and Paracycling International route to find out more about the event and how they can get involved.

Places on the roadshow should be booked in advance. Visit www.eventbrite.co.uk and search UCI roadshow Tadcaster.

The roadshow takes place on Monday 15 July at Tadcaster Leisure Centre, at 7.30pm.

The races take in a number of our district's towns and villages.

Tadcaster is one of four start points for the Para-Cycling International road races to be held on the first day of the championships, Saturday 21 September.  In our district,the races will visit North Duffield, Riccall, Kelfield, Cawood, Ryther, Ossendyke, Ulleskelf and Tadcaster itself before heading out towards Wetherby.

The para-cycling races are followed by the week-long UCI Road World Championships - the biggest event in the cycling calendar. Riders compete for their countries rather than for individual race teams.  It’s the only time this happens outside of the Olympics.

On Friday 27 September, the district will see riders involved in the women’s junior and men’s under-23 road races, as they make their way from Doncaster to Harrogate.  These races will come into the district at Little Heck, then take in  Eggborough, Kellington, Beal, Birkin, Hillam, Monk Fryston, South Milford, Sherburn-in-Elmet, Barkston Ash, Towton and then through Tadcaster and out towards Wetherby.

Race organisers will be in attendance, representatives from Selby District Council, the police and North Yorkshire County Council's Highways department. 

The roadshows are the perfect way to learn about the races and how you can get involved. The sessions will include a short presentation which includes route information, advice on how to make the most of this global event and is also the chance to ask any questions you might have.
