Opportunity to be a Tour de Yorkshire Volunteer

Tour Makers


Scarborough Borough Council is looking to give residents the opportunity to be involved in the Tour de Yorkshire by becoming official volunteers in their area.

Race organiser, Welcome to Yorkshire, has already called on the services of Tour Makers who helped make last year’s Tour de France such a resounding success.

The council also wants to make sure people have the opportunity to be part of Stage One of this year’s eagerly anticipated event on Friday 1 May.

It’s thought many people from this part of the region had put their names forward to become Tour Makers last year, but decided not to pursue the opportunity further when the route of the Tour de France was announced and towns like Scarborough, Whitby, Filey and Bridlington were not able to be accommodated.

Welcome to Yorkshire Area Director and Scarborough Borough Council Tourism Manager, Janet Deacon, said:

"We really want to give local people in every town and village on the route of the Tour de Yorkshire this special opportunity to become a Tour de Yorkshire volunteer."

"The army of Tour Makers chosen for last year’s Tour de France were a massive part of the success story and their role in giving hundreds of thousands of spectators a warm Yorkshire welcome cannot be understated."

"There are people from our part of the world who missed out last year who I know are keen to be a part of the race so this is a great chance for local residents to get involved in a world-class cycle race, right on their own doorsteps.”

Stage One of the Tour de Yorkshire starts in Bridlington and moves on to Hunmanby, Cayton, Eastfield, Seamer and East Ayton. Some of the world’s top cyclists will then carve a route through Dalby Forest before they sweep through Thornton le Dale, Pickering and Riders then head to the picturesque Esk Valley, negotiating a route through Castleton,

Danby, Glaisdale, Egton, Grosmont and Sleights before Whitby comes into view. It’s then on to Robin Hood’s Bay, Cloughton and Burniston before a spectacular end to the first day’s racing in Scarborough.

The full route can be viewed on the official website www.letour.yorkshire.com Tour de Yorkshire volunteers will take on roles including flag marshalling, route marshalling and supervising.
