A free roadshow for business and community representatives will be held at Bridlington Spa on Wednesday, 20 February to further showcase 2019 Tour de Yorkshire, the world-class cycle race which promises to be among one of the many highlights in the region’s calendar.
Organised and hosted by Welcome to Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire Council, the roadshow is an opportunity for businesses and residents to find out more information.
Following the race route announcement in December 2018, the East Riding will host two days of racing in the four-day event, on Thursday, 2 May and Saturday, 4 May 2019.
At the roadshow there will be a short presentation, details about the new route and a Q&A. Attendees will also receive advice and guidelines about what they can do to get the best out of the May event.
It will take place from 1.30pm, with registration at 1.30pm and the event to start at 2pm.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “This roadshow will be a wonderful chance for businesses and community organisations to find out more about this spectacular 2019 event for both Yorkshire and the East Riding.
“We know that Bridlington is one of the eight host towns which makes it fitting that the Spa will be the place to hold this year’s roadshow.
“Tour de Yorkshire is something we are immensely proud to be part of, so along with Welcome to Yorkshire we want to support the race by getting the message out there as best we can and to encourage local businesses and communities to be involved, as no doubt it will be a tremendous boost for them as it has been in previous years.”
