Saturday 21 September – Tadcaster hosts a Para-Cycling International race start
We're working with the Tadcaster events organisation TEMPT to help Tadcaster stage the host event fro this race. We're expecting lots of people to come along on the first day of the cycling event to watch the riders on the longer stage race pass through the town at around 1.18pm, before the second category of riders set off at 2pm from the town.
The first wave of riders will enter the town from the A162, turning right along the High Street, over the bridge and then towards Wighill. The second category of riders (expected to be around 100 riders) set off from the bus station on Commercial Sgtreet, heading up the hill and out of town the same way - left towards Wetherby.
There'll be a community festival with plenty of opportunities to watch the races, try out some of the cycles used with fun and games for the whole family. Inspiring healthy lifestyles will also be helping to organise activities. Manor Farm, the leisure centre, Kirkgate and Westgage will be the focus for these activities.
An accessible car parking and viewing area is being arranged and will be available to book on a first come, first served basis. We'll have more details about this soon.
Friday 27 September - UCI Road World Championships Women's junior and men's under 23 road race
There'll be lots of places to watch this race as it visits Little Heck, Eggborough, Kellington, Beal, Birkin, Hillam, Monk Fryston, South Milford, Sherburn in Elmet, Barkston Ash, Towton and Tadcaster.
South Milford will have a 'Feed Zone' for the women's race - riders from the women's junior road race are expected there around 10am. A ‘Feed Zone’ is a designated location for team vehicles to park up and offer feeding and assistance to their riders – such as new water bottles, food and mechanical assistance. It’s for teams/riders and not for spectators but does give you a chance to see riders and bikes up close.
The men's under 23 road race is expected to pass through Tadcaster around 3.45pm.
More information about the men's race, including exact timings, is available here.
