East Riding of Yorkshire Council is urging communities along the Tour de Yorkshire route to embrace this year’s cycle race and celebrate the East Riding by decorating their towns and villages.

This year’s Tour de Yorkshire peloton will pass through Warter, Pocklington, Allerthorpe, Seaton Ross, Melbourne, Foggathorpe and Holme on Spalding Moor on Thursday 3 May.

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:

l Best Dressed Village

l Best Dressed Town

l Best Dressed Host Location

l Spirit of Le Tour

Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The East Riding has been involved in the race every year since its inception and it is amazing to see the enthusiasm it generates, with communities decorating their towns and villages with bunting, banners and works of art to create a sea of blue and yellow.

“The competition is an opportunity to further promote the East Riding. It would be great to see one of our towns or villages walk away with one of the titles.”
