National Cycling Championships – Saltburn

June 23


Get ready for exhilarating racing as the British Cycling National Road Championships, Road Race returns to Saltburn.

The road races, starting and finishing in Saltburn on Sunday 23rd June 2024, will conclude the championships and challenge the riders with its steep gradient and tight hairpin bends separating the best from the rest.

Both the men and women will follow a loop, with the women completing several laps to cover 130km, and the men taking on laps to cover 182km. Each lap will start by heading into the villages of East Cleveland, passing the historic Skelton Castle, before heading through the old mining sites in Kilton. Riders will then drop back down to the coast of Saltburn before firing up Saltburn Bank to the finish.

Great Britain Cycling Team rider Charlie Tanfield, who also rides for Saint Piran, said:

“I’m so excited to be back racing on home roads in Tees Valley this year. Saltburn Bank is steep and it’s over pretty quickly, but it made for an epic finish at last year’s race, so it’ll be really great to ride it again this year. 

“There’s a bit of a cycling culture around here, and there’s great roads so it naturally attracts cyclists from across the country, and the crowds last year were amazing. I truly believe in my slightly biased opinion that there aren’t any other regions in the UK that has as good roads and climbs to ride on!”
