Lighting up for UCI

Hambleton District Council’s Civic Centre headquarters is turning rainbow colours every night to mark the final month’s countdown to the world cycle championships.

Northallerton is to host the start of one the most prestigious races in the UCI Road World Championships – the men’s elite time trial.  The High Street will be taken over with riders from across the globe on Wednesday September 25 – who will cycle through Romanby, Morton on Swale and Bedale as they head to the finish line in Harrogate 54km later.

And the following weekend (Sept 28 and 29) riders will once again venture into the district passing through West Tanfield on both days.
