The East Riding resort of Bridlington has been confirmed as one of eight host towns for the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire.
The seaside town is no stranger to the tour, having written itself into the race’s history as the start location for the inaugural event in 2015 and again in 2017.
As part of its three-year partnership with Welcome to Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire Council has secured a guaranteed stage start or finish in the East Riding and is pleased to once again be part of the race, which has become one of the most eagerly-anticipated on the world cycling calendar.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of the council: “Bridlington has played a big part in the Tour de Yorkshire’s brief history, so it is only fitting it has again been chosen as one of next year’s host towns.
“The council has proudly sponsored the race since its start and has helped it grow in size and popularity year-on-year.
“Not only does the Tour de Yorkshire give our residents the chance to see some of the world’s top cyclists, it boosts the local economy and puts our region on the map as a must-visit destination.”
The full route will be unveiled at a high-profile press conference on Friday, 7 December.
The race will run from Thursday, 2 to Sunday, 5 May 2019.
