Tour de France & UCI road World Championships
Harrogate town centre, by Hedgehog Cycling
The junior women's road race at the 2019 UCI road World Championships in Yorkshire starts in Doncaster, and makes its way north via Hatfield and Thorne. It passes to the east of Pontefract and Castleford, and continues north through Monk Fryston and Sherburn-in-Elmet, before reaching Tadcaster. Wetherby is the next main town, and from there the riders take the A661 to Spofforth. Arriving in High Harogate at the Empress roundabout, they are on the A59 to the New Park roundabout, before approaching the finish, like the other races, along Ripon Road, Swan Road, Crescent Road, and Parliament Street. The line is on West Park in Harrogate.

Harrogate is a town of about 75,000 people, in North Yorkshire.
Its mineral waters were discovered in the 1500s, and it grew as a spa town in the centuries that followed. Many of the spa facilities were built in Queen Victoria's time.
Royal Pump Rooms, Harrogate
You can visit the Royal Pump Rooms museum, drink the foul sulphur water from a tap outside (not advised), or dip into the Turkish Baths.
These days, Harrogate's economy is still partly based on tourism and visitors. It has a major Convention Centre, the Great Yorkshire Showground, and many good hotels.
Attractions include the RHS garden at Harlow Carr, the Valley Gardens, and Betty's tea rooms.
