All the biggest teams and riders will descend upon Guisborough on the 2nd April for what will become an early season classic!
East Cleveland Villages BIG Local has commissioned a Spring Elite Cycling Grand Prix to be part of British Cycling Series Cup to be raced through East Cleveland, on Sunday 2nd April 2017. The race has been approved by British Cycling and has been in partnership with Velo29
The route goes through and past East Cleveland Villages, to showcase our beautiful coast, woodland and moorland taking in the breath-taking scenery East Cleveland has to offer.
This is the start of an ambitious Tourism strategy to place East Cleveland back on the Map as a visitor destination.
They are asking for all the community to get behind the Klondike GP and ‘get onboard’ by coming out on the day, decorating your area, (think Tour de Yorkshire only our colours are Dark Green and ‘Golden’ Yellow), it doesn’t matter how old you are or what you do, everyone from baking, knitting, drawing, designing, painting to talking to each other about the bike race…
