London North Eastern Railway (LNER) will run a special Azuma train services between Harrogate and Leeds during the UCI Road World Championships, in addition to existing train services, providing thousands of extra seats to help get spectators to the prestigious sporting event.

Seven Azuma trains will run between Harrogate and Leeds on the weekends of 21-22 and 28-29 September, when thousands of spectators are expected to travel to the famous Yorkshire spa town.

Suzanne Donnelly, Commercial Director at LNER said: “Harrogate is an important destination for LNER so we want to support the town and help visitors during the UCI Championships by providing extra train services.

“We’re excited to provide thousands of extra seats by using some of our new Azuma trains, allowing visitors to get a taste of what’s to come before they’re permanently introduced on the route later this year.”

The UCI Road World Championships has not been in the UK for 37 years so it is expected trains will be busy as spectators travel to be part of the free event.

Due to large number of spectators for the event, LNER recommends customers plan ahead and do not travel with a cycle.

Details of the extra trains and how to book can be found here.
