UCI Road World Championships: Road Closure Plan

This massive global sporting event will again focus the eyes of the world on our county, allowing everyone a fantastic opportunity to showcase it to the world.

We are looking forward to celebrating with you and enjoying the many events planned by towns and villages up and down the route.

Hosting the UCI Road World Cycling Championships will build on the reputation North Yorkshire has as a spectacular destination for cycling, beginning with the Tour de Yorkshire Grand Départ in 2014 and growing with its legacy, the annual Tour de Yorkshire. The spectators, who will come from around the world, and the global media coverage, including live broadcasts on BBC TV, will bring significant economic benefits and offer our county incredible worldwide profile once again.

As a major partner we are working with the event organisers Yorkshire 2019 and many other organisations, to ensure that the UCI Road World Cycling Championships are a safe and enjoyable event for spectators and cyclists and that disruption is minimised for people who live, work or go to school near the routes.

UCI travel and transport

As North Yorkshire prepares to welcome the 2019 UCI Road World Championships, traffic management planning is well underway. Road closures, diversion routes, parking restrictions and alternative parking areas will be in place to help to minimise the impact on residents and businesses whilst also ensuring the safe and successful delivery of the championships. You can keep up to date with information about roadshows, enter the Name the Bear competition and be in with a chance to win a hamper of goodies and the bear too as well as finding all the latest information about road closures and parking restrictions here
