Tour de Yorkshire 2017 - Stage 1 weather forecast

Weather can have a major effect on cyclists.

Fri 28 Apr 2017

Stage one will see riders race from Bridlington to Scarborough, covering a total of 173km.

The route will lead cyclists through Pocklington, before heading to Whitby. Cyclists will then pass through Robin Hood's Bay and finish in Scarborough along North Bay.

What conditions will the cyclists face at the Tour de Yorkshire?

"The Tour de Yorkshire, starting in Bridlington at lunch time on Friday, will be fairly quiet, the wind will have eased and it will be mostly dry. Temperatures on the low side, hovering around 10 or 11°C during the afternoon. 

"Come Saturday, the forecast is looking good; fine and dry with some bright or sunny spells and a light wind. Temperatures by early afternoon will reach 13°C.

"By Sunday, it’ll be breezier with an increasing chance of some rain later in the day. However temperatures may well reach the mid teens." 

Clare Nasir, Met Office Meteorologist.

Cycling and the weather

Whether it's a time trial, road race, or any other kind of outdoor discipline, weather determines not only what a cyclist should wear, what they should eat and drink, and what equipment they should use, but can also be fundamental to tactics in a race. Make more informed decisions about how and when to ride safely during difficult weather conditions.
