Welcome to Yorkshire will be hosting its Tour de Yorkshire roadshow in Ilkley on Wednesday 18 March between 6 and 8pm.
The event at the Kings Hall on Station Road will give local residents and businesses everything they need to know to make the most of this year’s race.
Information on the route is provided along with details of the publicity caravan, ambassadors’ tour and amateur sportive, and the ever-popular Land Art and Best Dressed competitions.
There is also a section focused on how businesses can get behind the race, and an opportunity for people to ask any questions they might have about the event.
Stage Four of the men’s race on Sunday 3 May will come through Ilkley along Denton Rd and out via The Cow and Calf Rocks onwards to Burley Woodhead and Menston.
The Tour de Yorkshire will take place between April 30th – 3rd May and visit 160 villages, towns and cities, 50 of which are featuring for the very first time.
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!”
