Cycling fever is set to hit the UK once again next year, as the host cities for the beginning and end of the Tour de Yorkshire have been announced!
The tour will see thousands of cyclists passing through Leeds, Wakefield, Bridlington, Selby and Scarborough at various stages of the inaugural tour, which is being organised by the team behind the Tour de France, Amaury Sport Organisation.
Last year saw Yorkshire host the start of the Tour de France, the Grand Depart, with tourists from across the world travelling to the area in droves for the atmosphere and spectacle.
Tour director, Christian Prudhomme, said; “I am delighted we are returning to Yorkshire where we saw the grandest ever Grand Départ for the Tour de France. It is clear the people of Yorkshire are passionate about cycling and we can’t wait to bring them this new race.”
Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, added: “This is another huge milestone for Yorkshire as we position the county as the cycling heartland of Europe. This is the first ever Tour de Yorkshire, I am confident it will become a huge annual event and something that will raise Yorkshire’s profile year on year.”
