Hospitality businesses in Pocklington have backed the Post’s drive to bring the new Tour de Yorkshire international cycle race to the town and surrounding area.

Last week, the Post launched a campaign for the area to be included in the Tour de Yorkshire route.

The race, which will be held on 1-3 May, is expected to become a flagship event in the UK in 2015.

Hotels and bed breakfasts in Pocklington have got behind the campaign, claiming the event could provide a welcome boost to the local economy and tourism in the area.
