The Grand Départ enters the national park at Holme village, rides over Holme Moss – the Peak District’s greatest cycling hill-climb and one of the race’s toughest challenges which carries points for the King of the Mountains title – on to the Woodhead Pass, through Langsett and Bradfield and into Sheffield.

Tony Favell, chair of the Peak District National Park Authority, said: “It gives everyone who lives and works here a unique opportunity to showcase our beautiful landscapes and vibrant communities to the rest of the world.”
