The official sportive at the 2019 UCI road World Championships will start and finish in Harrogate, and take place on Sunday 22nd September 2019.

The amateur event is open to 5,000 people, and will take place on large sections of the professional courses. Finishers will get medals.

Later that Sunday, the mixed team time trial will be raced in Harrogate - making what the organisers call 'the perfect day of cycling'.

There are three routes - 72km, 98km, and 145km. The details are yet to be announced, but all three will include the Harrogate circuit.

Riders who wish to take part can register their interest now. Sign-up is between 4th and 20th March 2019, and allocation of places will be announced on 27th March.

Sir Gary Verity said, 'The UCI road World Championships in Yorkshire this year will be one of those 'where were you when' moments, so to be one of the 5,000 amateur cyclists taking part in the official sportive, riding on the same roads as the professionals, in front of massive crowds, will be an unforgettable experience.'
