“It is great news for the local traders, as it will help increase their turnover due to the extra visitors to the town.”
“Local people also get a chance to enjoy a great spectacle, and all of that is great for Beverley.”
“However, I just wanted to make the additional point that the Tour de Yorkshire itself is enhanced by Beverley opening our doors to accommodate it.”
“It is a partnership after all, and The Tour’s product offering and overall appeal is significantly boosted if it is able to offer Beverley, one of the most delightful market towns in England, as one of its starts or finishes.”
Last year a record number of people watched the Tour de Yorkshire with organisers of the Tour de Yorkshire saying it generated £64m in revenue for the county.
Beverley staged a start in 2016 and was featured on TV reaching millions of viewers across the globe.
Beverley alone with the other locations named will have to wait until December to learn exactly how they will fit into the race.
The 2018 Tour de Yorkshire is set to place from Thursday, 3 to Sunday, 6 May 2018.
