The women's road race starts in the centre of Bradford. The riders make their way north via Shipley and Otley, then climb up Norwood Edge. They continue to Pateley Bridge, then on to Lofthouse, and the steep Côte de Lofthouse climb. The market town of Masham is at the top of the route, then it's back south via West Tanfield to Ripon. The return to Harrogate is via Bishop Thornton, Shaw Mills, Clint, Birstwith, Clapham Green, and Hampsthwaite. The finishing circuit is the same as the men's, but only done three times.

This is the start list for the elite women's road race.

The men's road race starts in Leeds, and is a monster route of 280km. The ride through the Yorkshire Dales closely resembles Stage 1 of the 2014 Tour de France, with climbs at Cray, Buttertubs, and Grinton Moor. On their return Harrogate, the riders do seven laps of the 14-km Beckwithshaw-Penny Pot Lane-Valley Gardens circuit, before the finish line on West Park.

This is the start list for the elite men's road race.

UCI 2019 Harrogate circuit

Parliament Street, Harrogate

The Harrogate circuit is central to the 2019 UCI Road World Championships. The mixed team time trial is exclusively on it, and most of the other races will ride it after a route from elsewhere in Yorkshire. For example, the women's road race does three laps, and the men's road race does seven.

UCI 2019 Yorkshire road World Championships: news: new women's time trial route

20th May 2019

Route of the UCI 2019 elite women's ITT
UCI 2019 elite women's ITT route

There's been a change to the route of the elite women's individual time trial at the Yorkshire Worlds.

The original route was straight down the A61 from Ripon to Harrogate, followed by one lap of the Harrogate circuit. The new route forks off the A61 at Ripley, and takes in Bedlam, Clint, Birstwith, and Hampsthwaite.

The change may have been made to minimise disruption to traffic, but the result is a more challenging, technical, and interesting time trial course.
