Introducing Tour de Yorkshire 2015: Building on the Tour de France’s Grand Depart

23rd March 2015

You’re sure to have heard by now about the fantastic introduction of the Tour de Yorkshire on May 1-3, 2015, following on from the success of the Tour de France’s Le Grand Depart in 2014.

With the success of Le Grand Depart from 2014’s Tour de France still buzzing across Yorkshire, the official board for the region, Welcome to Yorkshire has got on board to organise an annual event called Tour de Yorkshire.

Including parts of our beautiful coastline which missed out on last year’s antics there is lots in store in the three stage ride, as well as a specific ride for amateur cyclists, the Tour de Yorkshire Festival from 1 April to 3 May and in 2016 we will welcome the return of The Yorkshire Festival, which went hand-in-hand with last year’s Tour de France Grand Depart.

For more information about the Tour de Yorkshire, we have a great blog series coming up with all the details on the event as a whole and all three stages of the ride.

  • Stage 1: Bridlington to Scarborough
  • Stage 2: Selby to York
  • Stage 3: Wakefield to Leeds

The race is being organised by Welcome to Yorkshire and the Amaury Sport Organisation, with support from British Cycling and local authorities throughout the county, especially the start and finish towns and cities; Bridlington, Leeds, Scarborough, Selby, Wakefield, York and North Yorkshire County Council and East Riding Council.

If you’re a keen cyclist or fan of the sport, we encourage you to keep up to date with all of the goings on via our official Stanley Travel Bike Bus subsidiary, on Facebook and Twitter, @UKBikeBus.
