Tour de Yorkshire Roadshow In Filey

Tour de Yorkshire Roadshow In Filey

Published by Karen Liu at 6:31am 9th March 2020.

People in Filey can find out more about this year's Tour de Yorkshire today.

Information roadshows are being held by Welcome to Yorkshire, North Yorkshire County Council and other partners for businesses, residents and community groups to find out how to make the most of the internationally-followed race.

As well as advice on making the most of the sporting event, the sessions will include information on the new route, how to become a tour maker, community celebrations and how to take part in the land art and ‘best dressed’ town and village contests.

It takes place at Filey Evron Centre today (Monday 9th March) from 6pm to 8pm.

North Yorkshire County Council leader, Cllr Carl Les said:

“Anyone who would like to see their community to make the most of this event and get involved in the celebrations is invited to attend the roadshows and find out all the different ways they can do this.

Last year the race attracted a record-breaking television audience of 28 million – well up on the 12.5m who watched in 2018. For all businesses this presents a fantastic opportunity, particularly for those areas recently affected by flooding who want to let everyone know they are well and truly open for business.”

The first day of the race, on Thursday 30th April, will involve the Yorkshire Coast, as it starts from Beverley and ends in Redcar.

The route is Beverley - Hornsea - Bridlington - Flamborough - Filey - Hackness - Cote de Hook -  Whitby Abbey - Cote de Lythe - Saltburn-by-the sea - Redcar.

The route misses Scarborough town and seafront for the first time.

It is the fourth time the race has visited Bridlington and the fifth time it has gone to Whitby.

Registration for the roadshows is not compulsory, but people are asked to book a place if they can, to give the organisers an idea of numbers.

well from what i heard from local business people they actually did worse when the race came through. One has said they are seriously considering closing for the day. Cafes and pubs are the ones to benefit.
