AHEAD of the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire in May, the organisers are once again putting on more than 50 roadshows in towns along the route.

The aim of the roadshows is to keep local people fully informed and answer any questions or concerns they may have and also to ensure businesses and local communities make the most of the race and can fully capitalise on the many benefits it can bring to an area.

The roadshow will come to Bridlington on February 20 and other dates and locations are being added.

The event will give out all the information needed about the race itself (including the caravan and other surrounding activity) the sportive and the Land Art and Best Dressed competitions. There is also a full section on how businesses and local communities can get behind the race, from adapting products and services to decorations to school and community events and activities.

Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “The roadshows are the perfect way to get all the information you need to make the most of the race, whether you are a business, school or community group or simply a resident living near the route.”
