Sir Gary Verity DL, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire said:

“It’s been great meeting people in two of the host towns of the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire and building excitement ahead of the full route announcement. We get so much support from our local communities during the race that we wanted to come and thank them in person. It was fantastic to see so many young people engaging with cycling, the true legacy of both the Tour de France and Tour de Yorkshire. The Christmas performance was magical and the light switch on the icing on the (Christmas) cake.”

The full route of the Tour de Yorkshire will be unveiled tomorrow in Leeds.
