One of the biggest sporting events of the year is about to land right on our doorstep.

Taking place from 21 - 29 September 2019, cycling's Road World Championships begin in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Millions of visitors are expected, along with some of the world's best cyclists.

There'll be races in a range of disciplines, chasing across the region for the honour of wearing the rainbow-striped jersey.

ITV correspondent Gregg Easteal is riding the route of the men's elite road race, meeting the people and places that will make this event special along the way.
