Skipton Cycle Races 2017

Skipton’s annual town centre cycle race is due to take place on Wednesday 5th July and offers an unmissable opportunity to watch cyclists compete on a fast 1km circuit.

Featuring a fun race for under 12s, youth racing and an elite men’s race, Skipton Cycle Races have become an incredibly popular fixture in the town’s sporting calendar. Following part of the routes visited by the 2014 Grand Depart and the Tour de Yorkshire, the race circuit starts at the top of the High Street before travelling onto Water Street, Coach Street and Swadford Steet.

The spectator-friendly race circuit offers lots of great places to enjoy a view of the action and with a picture postcard backdrop of Skipton Castle and town centre, what better way to enjoy an evening of super-fast road cycling?
