Tour de Yorkshire sportive: Sunday 5th May

Whatever distance you’re riding on Sunday, head to Rapha's Mobile Clubhouse for a coffee at the start and a beer at the finish. Rapha will be running QOM and KOM competitions for the climbers plus prize draws for the latest Rapha products.

To launch the store on Saturday 13th April, Rapha hosted a 75km 'Yorkshire Classic Reconnaissance' ride taking on many of the roads set to be used in the Queen stage of the Tour de Yorkshire just a month later. 

Yorkshire will be the beating heart of cycling in the UK in 2019. The men's and women's Tour de Yorkshire races are taking place for the fifth year from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th May.

The professional peloton then returns to the Yorkshire city of Harrogate, just 30km from Leeds, in September for the UCI World Championships from Saturday 21st to Sunday 29th.

Rapha will also return to Yorkshire for the World Championships partnering with bike manufacturer Canyon to host a pop-up fan zone.
