Welcome to the official website of the annual Otley Cycle Races. Despite our best efforts we couldn't run the event in 2020, but we were back for 2021 - the 35th edition and what a scinitilating evening of high class racing it was. Why not join us again next year in the picturesque Yorkshire Market town of Otley. 

Dream Bike made it possible for Otley Cycle Races to be brought LIVE to everyone this year.

To help with the costs we’ve set up a just giving page.
