A164 between Beverley town centre and Skidby roundabout will shut for an hour from 8am for the women's race and then again at 2.45pm for the men's.

Drivers have been advised to avoid the market town as congestion is likely to build.

A statement on the East Riding of Yorkshire Council website says: "Most of the rolling road closures will last no more than an hour apart from the start and finish lines. Road closures will be managed by the police, and closures and travel restrictions will also be advertised on affected routes via signage and variable message signs.

"The A164 will be closed from approximately 8:15am to 9:00am between Beverley Town Centre and Skidby roundabout, and again between 2:45pm and 3:30pm. This will include access from the slip roads from the A1079 at the Jock's Lodge junction.

"This is likely to cause significant delays so please plan your journey carefully and allow extra time for travel. Motorists and the travelling public should also expect delays in and around Hornsea, Pocklington and Howden on the day of the race.

"School Lane, Spencer Street and Saturday Market car parks in Beverley will be closed from 5pm on Wednesday 2 May to 6pm on Thursday 3 May.

"Most bus services will be operating as normal, however a small number of services may experience delays during the journey where they encounter the race, and some services have been cancelled."
