Timings to follow.
Coach & Horses, Harrogate
The junior women's individual time trial begins at the start/finish line on West Park. The riders set off up West Park, past the Coach & Horses pub, to the Prince of Wales roundabout.
Harlow Hill Tower, Harrogate (and the water tower on the right)
At the Prince of Wales roundabout, the competitors turn right, and begin the long, straight drag up Otley Road to Harlow Hill. Then it's downhill past the Pine Marten pub and Harlow Carr, and some flat before reaching Beckwithshaw.
On reaching Beckwithshaw, it's a right turn - down to Oak Beck, and up the other side on a little climb known as Pot Bank. At the top of the hill is the Jubilee Roundabout, and here the riders turn right down Penny Pot Lane.

They have a sharp turn to the right to negotiate on the way down the hill to the narrow bridge over Oak Beck. Then the sequence is left bend onto the bridge - over the bridge - left bend after the bridge, and immediately up a steep drag away from the beck.
Climb up from Oak Beck, Penny Pot Lane
Penny Pot Lane turns into Cornwall Road then Harlow Moor Road. It's still uphill, but not so steep. After the left turn on Harlow Moor Drive, it's downhill, past the south side of the Valley Gardens.

Swan Road brings the competitors back to the Royal Pump Rooms, where they swing left onto Crescent Road. At the end of Crescent Road, they turn right up Parliament Street.

Read about the junior women's road race.
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.
