We are thrilled to have been selected as one of the partner charities for the 2018 Maserati Tour de Yorkshire Sportive. The event will take place on Sunday 6 May 2018, and all we can tell you about the location is that it will be in Yorkshire!
If you want to get your place ahead of general admission and support the Appeal in the process you need to keep your eyes on our social media for further announcements next week. This will include the top secret location of the route.
The Maserati Tour de Yorkshire Ride offers a unique mix of Tour de France delivery combined with Yorkshire hospitality and beauty resulting in a sportive dream day. This is your chance to ride many of the same roads as the pros before they do, including the pro finish line, complete with support from the waiting crowds.

- Long Route: 100km
- Medium Route: 75km
- Short Route: 50km

Cyclist Magazine said of the event "Rightly holds its place towards the top end of the 'must-ride' category of UK sportives"
A Telegraph correspondent said "I had just tackled 100km (62 miles) of Yorkshire's finest roads, totting up 6,500 feet of elevation in the process, and I was a broken man. But for the 30 seconds of that final straight, the whistles, shouts and whoops as deafening as they were uplifting, I felt as light and spritely as I had five hours earlier."
Kate Goldring, Appeal Manager said "We are really thrilled the organisers contacted us to propose this partnership. As a charity synonymous with sporting challenges, we are thrilled to add one of the UK's most prestigious cycling events to our calendar and hope everyone will get behind us and take their place in the Tour de Yorkshire for the Appeal."
