Some of the biggest names in cycling will once again be heading to the region, after it was announced that next year’s Tour de Yorkshire will pass through Market Weighton for the second consecutive year.

The cycling extravaganza returns from 29 April to 1 May with new routes and new challenges. The inaugural Tour de Yorkshire wound its way across the region in May this year, including Market Weighton, and the town will welcome the Tour again next year on 29 April, which is the first stage of the race.

See tomorrow’s Pocklington Post (10 December) for the full story.
