Communities along the Tour de Yorkshire route are being to embrace this year’s cycle race and celebrate the East Riding by decorating their towns and villages.
Welcome to Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Post have linked up to run a competition to find the Tour de Yorkshire’s Best Dressed, with four categories being contested.
Beverley Town Council will discuss how they can support the event at their next full council meeting in April.
“The council is proud of the level of civic pride that events like the Tour de Yorkshire instil in residents and local communities.
“The East Riding has been involved in the race every year since its inception and it is amazing to see the support and enthusiasm it generates, with communities stepping up and decorating their towns and villages with bunting, banners and works of art to create a sea of blue and yellow.
“The competition being run by Welcome to Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Post is an opportunity to further promote the East Riding nationally and internationally and it would be great to see one of our towns or villages walk away with one of the titles.”
Towns and villages across the county will have the opportunity to win awards for;
- Best Dressed Village
- Best Dressed Town
- Best Dressed Host Location
- Spirit of Le Tour
The council is currently finalising its operational plans for the race, which starts in the Beverley on Thursday, 3 May, and is liaising with local town and parish councils as well as community groups to make the 2018 race the best yet.
