Rotherham welcomes Le Tour de Yorkshire cycle race

This year, for the first time, a significant part of the Tour de Yorkshire Route will be passing through the borough. Setting off from Barnsley, Stage 2 of the race passes through Wentworth, Swinton – which hosts an exciting sprint stage – Kilnhurst and Hooton Roberts, before going on to Doncaster and finishing in Ilkley.

Both the men’s and women’s races will follow the same route through the borough, with the women travelling through in the morning, and the men's race mid-afternoon.

Local people and businesses are advised that there will be brief temporary road closures as the Tour comes through the borough, and temporary parking restrictions will also be in place on the day.

For the women’s race, there will be rolling road closures from 9.00am ahead of the cyclists passing through. Roads are expected to be open again by around 10.15am.

The men’s race will come through during the afternoon, from 2.45pm, with roads expected to be open again by approximately 4.00pm.
