Get on yer bike for the UCI World Championships

Otley welcomes the world this Saturday and Sunday (September 28 & 29) when the UCI World Cycling championships come through the town.

The prestigious event is taking place in and around Harrogate this year, with the women’s elite and men’s elite races passing through the town on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Otley is also a great place for visitors to base themselves. Not only is the town within a 20-minute drive of the main event hubs in Harrogate, but we also have some great accommodation options.

Otley’s famed as a pub town and our hostelries will once again be following the tradition of re-naming themselves for significant events. This time, each pub will take on the mantle of a different country – and each will be themed after their new name.

There will also be a number of other cycling themed events in and around the town over the weekend.
