It also makes its first appearance in Leeds.

A rolling road block is set to be in place for around 30/45 minutes during the timings below, to allow the full group of riders through.

The Tour passes through Leeds on Friday, May 4 taking in areas such as Otley and passing Harewood House, before the rip roaring conclusion on The Headrow in the city centre – on exactly the same spot as where the Tour de France started in 2014, on Sunday.
