Tour de Yorkshire Information - 4th May 2018
The Tour de Yorkshire returns to Ilkley for an exciting stage finish on Friday 4th May 2018. Whilst it will be a great day, all departing and arriving guests, plus visitors, deliveries and staff need to be aware of ROAD CLOSURES that will affect getting to/from Westwood Lodge on the Friday. The following information is from the Council official website and offered in good faith. In brief: access to us is likely to only be possible (5am to 10pm) from the A65 and then via any of the "back roads" such as Victoria Avenue or Westville Road/Eaton Road, Parish Ghyll Drive, Princess Road and Queens Road round to us. Even then, the junction of the A65 and Brook Street will be closed as each race comes through.
From 5amto10pm the following roads will be closed:
Springs Lane (from Tesco to Station Road)
Keighley Road (green lane over the moor)
Ilkley Lido will be closed throughout the event
The women's race has an estimated arrival time (on Denton Road) of 12.15pm with an estimated latest finish time of 12.45pm. We expect that the A65 junction with New Brook Street and Brook Street will be closed between 11.45am and 1.15pm.
The men's race has an estimated arrival time (on Denton Road) of 5.40pm with an estimated latest finish time of 6.10pm. We expect that the A65 junction with New Brook Street and Brook Street will be closed between 5.10pm and 6.40pm.
Race publicity caravan
The Tour de Yorkshire publicity caravan will pass along the race route on the day of the event. Confirmed location and approximate timing for the caravan to get to the finish line is 4.57pm.
