The Tour de Yorkshire was due to start on Thursday 30 April 2020, with Stage 1 (the Yorkshire Coast Stage) starting from Saturday Market in Beverley before looping through Molescroft and heading out to Hornsea via Tickton and Leven. Once the peloton reached Hornsea the intended route would have headed north to Skipsea and Beeford and onto Bridlington where the route would have dropped onto the coastal route. The race was due to see a sprint section in Flamborough before heading through Bempton and north to Filey. After skirting around Scarborough, Stage 1 was due to travel along the coastal routes through Robin Hoods Bay, Whitby, Sandsend, Staithes, Saltburn and onto the finish in Redcar, 176.5km from the start of the race.
This would have been the third time Beverley had hosted a stage start.
Stage 2 (the Three Peaks stage) was intended to be a 124.5km race on Friday 1 May from Skipton to Leyburn taking in Hawes, the Ribblehead Viaduct and Settle. Stage 1 of the women's race would have been held over the same route.
The third stage was due to be held on Saturday 2 May and would have seen the peleton cycle 134km from Barnsley to Huddersfield in the Heritage Stage of the Tour. It was also stage 2 of the women's race. This route would have included Holmfirth, Mytholmroyd, Todmorden, Hebden Bridge, Queensbury, Halifax and Brighouse.
The final stage was due to be held on Sunday 3 May, the Yorkshire Classic, and would have seen the riders depart from Halifax and cycle 177.5km via Skipton, Pateley Bridge, Masham, Ilkey and Otley before finishing on The Headrow in Leeds.
Whether the same routes will be held when the race is reorganised remains to be seen and as more information on dates, routes etc is available we will update this page.
