Welcome to Yorkshire Commercial Director Peter Dodd said:

“The way people come out to support the Tour de Yorkshire is incredible. Whole towns and villages are draped in bikes, banners and bunting, and the number of fans on the roadside is always amazing to see.

We obviously want that to continue this year, and that’s why we’ve teamed up with local authorities across the county to put these roadshows on. We want people to be excited about the Tour and learn about the many advantages it can bring. 

We also know that people often have a lot of questions they’d like to ask as well, and these roadshows offer the perfect opportunity to do just that. We look forward to seeing you there!”
