Note: stage routes for the Tour of Britain 2022 are provisional and will be finalised in July

Stage four of the Tour of Britain, which starts in the seaside town of Redcar and finishes at Duncombe Park in Helmsley, promises to be a must watch day of racing.

The start will be the first time the borough of Redcar and Cleveland has hosted the Tour of Britain, while the finish marks the race’s return to North Yorkshire in 13 years. Popular seaside towns such as Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Whitby will be raced through before the route heads into the North York Moors National Park. The unforgiving final 30 kilometres of this 150-kilometre stage feature the climbs of Carlton Bank (2km long, 9.8% average gradient) and Newgate Bank (2km long, 6% average gradient) before descending into the finish at Duncombe Park, one of Yorkshire’s finest historic houses and estates.

North Yorkshire’s communities are well known for their wholehearted embrace of major cycling events, from the Tour de France Grand Départ to the Tour de Yorkshire and UCI Road World Championships, so large crowds are anticipated for this stage.

More details of stage four will be announced in Summer 2022.
