Stage 2 Barnsley to Bedale

Friday 3rd May

The Tour de Yorkshire will return to Barnsley in 2019. Last year’s event was a fantastic success and it’s great news for sports, tourism and business in the borough.

The race will take place 2-5 May 2019. Barnsley will host ‘The World Stage’, from Barnsley to Bedale on Friday 3 May 2019, which features both the women’s and the men’s races.

The peloton will travel along the A635 Huddersfield Road turn off to go through Mapplewell and Staincross along the B6428 to Staincross  Golf club and then down Lee lane to Royston so there are plenty of places to catch the action. Look out for Penistone FM along the way.

Barnsley town centre will be open for business during the Tour de Yorkshire 2019. There’s a brand new market, library, dining and retail space as part of the Glass Works redevelopment. There’ll be plenty on offer to tie in with the event.
