Held alongside the now firmly established Tour de Yorkshire pro race, the Tour de Yorkshire Ride offers amateur cyclists a chance to experience the fantastic cycling countryside of Yorkshire. The sportive was set up in the wake of the 2014 Tour de France visit to Yorkshire, which saw hundreds of thousands of cyclists visit the region.

The sportive is itself a tour of Yorkshire, with a different host city and different routes each year. Details for 2020 have yet to be announced, but earlybird entries are open for cyclists willing to take a gamble. And let's face it, with Yorkshire as the setting you can't really lose!

Next year's Tour de Yorkshire Ride takes place on Sunday 3 May 2020. Three distances are on offer, long (110-130km), medium (70-100km) and short (40-60km). Entries are priced £52 + booking fee for the two longer routes and £47.50 + booking fee for the short option.

If you'd like to take part, head over to the event website to book your place - but be quick, earlybird entries close at midnight tonight.

Don't worry if you miss out though; entries will reopen later, along with full details of the 2020 routes.
