Free roadshows at Howden and Snaith added to promote the Tour de Yorkshire 2019 race

Tue, 29 Jan 2019

Two free roadshows for business and community representatives have been added to the East Riding’s 2019 calendar in preparation for this year’s Tour de Yorkshire event in May.

Held at The Peppered Pig near Snaith (DN14 9BY) on Wednesday, 6 February, and at Shire Hall, Howden (DN14 7BJ) on Wednesday, 27 February, they will be a great opportunity to discover more about the world-class cycle race, with the region hosting two days of racing in the four-day event.

The sessions will offer a short presentation, detailed information of the route and a Q&A. Other roadshows, organised by Welcome to Yorkshire, with East Riding of Yorkshire Council officers in attendance, will be taking place across the region in February.

The event at Snaith starts at 2pm, with registration from 1.30pm, and the Howden session starts at 6pm, with registration from 5.30pm.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We are delighted that these two 2019 Tour de Yorkshire roadshows have been organised within our region.

“Snaith and Howden, like many other communities, will play an important part in this year’s Tour de Yorkshire, as this wonderful event will pass through them in May.

“The main purpose of these roadshows, then, is to really highlight how the race will act as a tremendous commercial opportunity to the local economy.”
