UCI Road World Championships 2019

In mid-late September 2019, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) is holding their annual Road World Championships in the Yorkshire Dales. They expect 500,000 visitors to attend the multi-day event and will be closing many roads across North Yorkshire as part of the cycling road race. Although this is a great event for the region and will provide an incredible spectacle for visitors, it does mean that baggage transfer activities before, during and after the event will be severely hampered.

The UCI is not able to provide details of the road closures until closer to the event, so Brigantes is unable to plan for any contingencies during the road closures. It is therefore, with great reluctance that we will have to halt all baggage transfers and accommodation bookings for the duration of the expected road closures. This is currently expected to be Wednesday 18th September to Monday 30th September 2019.

The following Brigantes holiday routes will be impacted by the event.
