The On Yer Bike charity celebrity cycle race will go from Kettlewell to Harewood with rolling road closures in place, managed by police motorbikes, alongside traffice management.

“This is similar to the approach used during the Tour de Yorkshire cycle races, however, the closure duration will be shorter with the vast majority of closures in place for around 15-25 mins,” said Mel Welch of Sport Nidderdale.

Advanced warning signage has been placed on the route, from Wednesday June 16, to warn road users of the potential for delay.

“The timings on these signs reflect the window in which the event is expected to arrive at specific location, with the actual road closure lasting for around 15-25 minutes within that time window,” added Mel.

“The closures will be dependent upon the speed of the event and will be removed as soon as the event has passed.”

The On Yer Bike event is being filmed for ITV and will be broadcast on ITV1 over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The event is broken down in to three stages.
