Worlds Classic 2019

Cycle like a pro and take on the 2019 cycling Road World Championships route to help stop prostate cancer being a killer

The Worlds Classic is your opportunity to cycle the road race stage of the championships from 6-8 September 2019. 

Taking place in Yorkshire, this three day event (one day riding) is your opportunity to cycle the same roads ahead of the pros. Get on your bike and on the fundraising leader board and make a real difference to the lives of men with prostate cancer.

Sign up now to secure your place, or if you need more information register your interest and we'll be in touch. Sign up before 22 April and use the code EARLYBIRD25 at the checkout for £25 off the registration fee!

Why sign up?

The route will largely follow the journey of the World Championships. Starting and finishing in Harrogate, you can choose from the Classic or Ultra routes for the ride to suit you. Both routes take in the stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales. The Classic will be a challenging but manageable 150km including one of the climbs made famous by the 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart, Cray. Check out the planned route on Strava.

Or take on the Ultra, 200km and the testing but rewarding climbs of Cray, Buttertubs and Grinton Moor. You can see the route on Strava.

  • Cycle the same route as the pros, just weeks before they do
  • The top fundraisers will receive a prestigious rainbow jersey of a world champion
  • You and your bike will be looked after from when you arrive on Friday evening through to Sunday morning
  • Transport, accommodation and food costs covered
  • Receive a Prostate Cancer UK cycling jersey 

Register your interest today to help us stop prostate cancer being a killer.
