Tour de Yorkshire 2017

The 2017 Tour de Yorkshire will be a huge boost to Tadcaster, where work continues on the main bridge following its collapse in last winter’s floods.  Christian Prudhomme, Director of the Tour de France, Nigel Adams MP, and Sir Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, recently visited the town to celebrate the race route announcement.



Tadcaster will host the start of day 2 of the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire on Saturday 29 April.  Both the women’s and men’s raced will start in the town on their way to Harrogate.  The full race route has now been announced.

Tadcaster’s got lots on offer and you can watch some films of our beautiful market town.

We backed the bid for Tadcaster

Selby District Council backed a bid for Tadcaster to take part, as part of long-term efforts to support the town following the floods last winter, which led to the collapse of the main bridge.

We’ll be using this page to keep you up-to-date on the race and how you can get involved.  There’ll be information here to help you run a community event and advice on how to create your own ‘land art’ to help celebrate the race.  We’ll also have information for businesses who want to make the most of this opportunity.

There’ll be information here to help you if you want to come along to watch the race.

The Tour de Yorkshire is broadcast around the world, and the 2016 race boosted the regional economy by around £100m.

You can watch a short film of the 2016 race.
