City of York Council has welcomed the unveiling of the official route of stage 2 of the 2014 Le Grand Départ that will run from York to Sheffield.
The second stage of Le Grand Départ will roll out from York Racecourse and then take to York’s historic streets. The peloton will ride along some of York’s best known streets and pass landmarks such as The York Minister before the racing starts in earnest when the riders reach the edge of the city.

York is regarded as one of the country's premier cycling
cities. It has an extensive network of off-road cycle paths and on-road
cycle lanes for cyclists of all ages and abilities to enjoy. Ample cycle parking is provided throughout the city, including several sites within the pedestrianised city centre. See the York Cycle Map (PDF, 2.68MB) for detailed cycle routes and cycle parking. You can also find cycle routes in your area in the York cycle routes download area.
We'll keep developing this area of the site to keep you updated with all the latest news and activities.
