Follow the riders on each stage of their route as they begin in Leeds, and sprint onto the spa town of Harrogate, before continuing from the city of York on and cycling towards Sheffield.  The final stage in England will begin in Cambridge before the cyclists pass through the Essex countryside and onto the finishing line in London.

If the sight of Chris Froome and his fellow competitors leaves you feeling inspired, grab your bike and explore some of England’s scenic country lanes, whether it’s a leisurely cycle along the River Cam in Cambridge to the suburb of Chesterton, or a bike ride to Ripley from Harrogate via a four-mile converted railway line known as The Greenway.

Those looking to up their peddle power to the max can take on the Peak Park Anniversary Cycle Route in Sheffield, where you’ll cycle past its awe-inspiring town hall and onto steeper territory as you head on up to Burbage Moor, and out to Hathersage in the Peak District for spectacular views to make the hard work worthwhile.
