Stage two of the Tour de France, described as the "past, present and future" section starts in historic York, heading for Knaresborough, the site of Mother Shipton's Cave, then onto Bolton Abbey, Keighley, the Bronte village of Haworth, then over to Hebden Bridge.
From there, riders face the the country's longest continuous climb up through Cragg Vale, then into the spine of the Pennines, Huddersfield, Holmfirth and the High Peaks. Next is the gruelling Holme Moss climb, descending into Sheffield where Stage Two will finish.
