The route of the 2016 Tour de Yorkshire has been revealed. Split into three stages, the cycle race covers 515.5km (320 miles), and will see riders weave across the Yorkshire landscape.

The race starts on Friday, 29 April in Beverley, East Yorkshire, and will end on Sunday, 1 May in the North Yorkshire resort of Scarborough.

Last year’s inaugural race was watched by an estimated 1m people and brought £50m into the region’s economy. The event was launched after Yorkshire hosted the Tour de France Grand Depart in 2014.

More than 140 riders joined the first race, including Olympic champion and Tour de France winner Sir Bradley Wiggins. The 2016 Tour will see the men’s race start on 29 April with a women’s race held on Saturday 30 April.
