The second stage will begin in York and take in Keighley, Haworth - famous as the home of the Brönte sisters - Hebden Bridge and Huddersfield with a finish in Sheffield.

The Olympic homage will see another stage of the race end in the Mall in central London - the finishing line for the road races at London 2012 - after doing a circuit of the Olympic Park in Stratford.
