Worlds Classic 2019

Cycle like a pro and take on the 2019 cycling Road World Championships route to help stop prostate cancer being a killer

The Worlds Classic is your opportunity to cycle the road race stage of the championships from 6-8 September 2019. 

Taking place in Yorkshire, this three day event (one day riding) is your opportunity to cycle the same roads ahead of the pros. Get on your bike and on the fundraising leader board and make a real difference to the lives of men with prostate cancer.

Register your interest today and we'll let you know when you can sign up for this special one-off event. 

Why sign up?

The route will largely follow the journey of the cycling World Championships. Starting and finishing in Harrogate, it'll be a challenging but manageable 185km ride taking in the climbs made famous by the 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart - Cray, Buttertubs and Grinton Moor - as well as the stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales.

  • Cycle the same route as the pros, just weeks before they do
  • The top fundraiser will receive the prestigious rainbow jersey of a world champion
  • You and your bike will be looked after from when you arrive on Friday evening through to Sunday morning
  • Transport, accommodation and food costs covered
  • Receive a Prostate Cancer UK cycling jersey 

Register your interest today to help us stop prostate cancer being a killer.
