Tour Makers registration underway

Thursday, 3 January 2019

Scarborough Borough Council is supporting Welcome to Yorkshire and ASO in promoting the registration for Tour Makers for the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire, which will take place later this year, between Thursday 2 and Sunday 5 May.

The race is now widely regarded as one of cycling's most dramatic and best supported events and simply would not be possible without the help of the incredible team of volunteer Tour Makers.

Full registration to become a 2019 Tour Maker is underway, with different roles available to apply for. Anyone interested in registering should go to https://letour.yorkshire.com/information/tour-makers/ for more information and to submit an application.

Race organisers will once again be working with regional police forces to deliver training sessions for all roles, which will be held in the coming months.

Last year a record 2.6 million spectators lined the route of the Tour de Yorkshire and £98 million was generated for the Yorkshire economy. This year the Borough of Scarborough will host the race on Saturday 4 May, including the overall finish of the Asda Tour de Yorkshire Women’s Race and the finish of Stage Three of the men’s race.

A workshop, delivered by Welcome to Yorkshire, for businesses and residents that would like to find out more about how they can maximise the opportunities the Tour de Yorkshire will bring, is being held next week. The event will be held on Tuesday 8 January from 10.00am to 12.00pm (with registration from 9.30am) at CU Scarborough Campus, Ashburn Road, Scarborough, YO11 2JW. The session will include a short presentation, detailed information of the new route, advice on how to make the most of the world-class event, brand guidelines and time for questions and answers. Anyone wishing to attend the workshop is encouraged to book a place online at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/tour-de-yorkshire-2019-roadshow-in-scarborough-tickets-52207804950
