Members of the clubs will be cycling in to City Park in Bradford city centre on Wednesday 25 September arriving between 6.30pm – 7pm.

Each club has been invited to bring with them an item representing their club which will go on display for the UCI Road World Championships weekend.

“This is one of a number of events taking place in the district and I’d like to encourage everyone to take the opportunity to celebrate the UCI Road World Championships either by coming to an event or by lining the route and cheering on the riders.”

The Women Elite Road Race of the Yorkshire 2019 UCI Road World Championships will set off from Centenary Square on Saturday 28 September. To celebrate there will be a free family friendly event with music, entertainment and the official publicity parade, the caravan all centred around City Park in Bradford City Centre.
