The UCI Road World Championships 2019 : The Worlds

The UCI Road World Championships are the World Cup of cycling, when riders race for their nation and the privilege of wearing the World Champion’s jersey, the Rainbow Stripes.

The 2019 World Championships will take place in Yorkshire, Great Britain and every race will end here in Harrogate.

All roads lead to Harrogate, The Heart of Yorkshire

Join us in the very centre of Yorkshire’s cycling renaissance on the roads that hosted the Tour de France in 2014 and changed how the world saw Yorkshire forever for nine days of epic racing and competition.

Starting across the four counties of Yorkshire every race of the Championships will end in the centre of Harrogate, alongside the 200 acre Stray, which will be the location of the official Fan Zone throughout the Championships.

Something Happening Every Day

Across Harrogate and its surrounding rural district there will be special events celebrating the racing, with bars and pubs showing the racing live throughout the days, cycling brands hosting special events and organised rides, there will always be something taking place across Harrogate town centre.

The Heart of Cycling in Yorkshire

From the Tour de France in 2014 to the now annual Tour de Yorkshire, Harrogate and the surrounding roads have been at the heart of Yorkshire’s love of cycling.  Harrogate is positioned beautifully between the Yorkshire Dales to the west and the Vale of York to the east offering an eclectic choice of riding. 

The time trialist can find plenty of flat open roads under an enormous sky to lose themselves in their cadence while you find ascents to test any legs on some of Nidderdale’s Killer Climbs.

The Harrogate loop itself, in use for the early time trials and all the road races, is a technical and undulating circuit that encapsulates the very spirit of cycling in Yorkshire and shows why the county has produced some of the very best cyclists in the UK.  See a full circuit of the loop with our own guide, Guy Kesteven of the Cycle Expo Yorkshire here.
