Tour de Yorkshire: Prepare for any likely travel disruption in our area

April 30, 2019

This Thursday and Saturday sees the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race in the East Riding.

 The race is in our area on Thursday 2 May as the men’s race goes from Doncaster to Selby and on Saturday 4 May as both the men’s and women’s races start in Bridlington and ends in Scarborough.

The key areas for disruption on Thursday 2 May is that the Market Place in Pocklington will be closed between 1pm and 6pm. 

Other than that there are parking restrictions on the whole route and a rolling road block which is likely to cause an estimated 40 minute delay as the race passes through.

On Saturday 4 May the focus moves to Bridlington where both the man's and women's races will start outside The Spa.  South Marine Drive and part of Kingston Road will be closed to vehicles from 6pm on Friday 3 May until 6pm on Saturday 4 May.

The race will be managed using rolling road closures rather than long-term closures.

Most of the rolling road closures will last no more than 40 minutes apart from the start and finish lines.

Road closures will be managed by the police, and closures and travel restrictions have also been advertised on affected routes via signage and variable message signs.

Full race and route information is available on the Tour de Yorkshire website:

Further information about local road closures and information is on the East Riding of Yorkshire Council website:

There are bus timetable and route changes on both 2 and 4 May.  For EYMS bus travel disruption see their website:
