Volunteer to be a Tour de Yorkshire Tour Maker
With less than 100 days to go until this year’s Tour de Yorkshire, Scarborough Borough Council is supporting the drive by Welcome to Yorkshire to recruit Tour Makers.
Welcome to Yorkshire is working in partnership with regional police forces to look for a passionate and reliable team of volunteers, known as Tour Makers, which will be part of the spirit of the race and be the welcoming face of Yorkshire for spectators.
Anyone in the borough interested in becoming a Tour Maker needs to complete a short online survey, which can be found at: www.letour.yorkshire.com/tour-makers
Volunteers will need to attend a police led training session and be available for the race weekend on Friday 29 April, Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May.
The 2016 Tour de Yorkshire will mark the third return for Tour Makers, following the Tour de France in 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire in 2015.
Cllr Andrew Backhouse, Scarborough Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism, Leisure and Culture 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 the Tour de France in 2014 and the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire 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.
“We know there are people out there keen to be a part of the excitement in an active way so this is a great chance for them to get involved in a world-class cycle race, right on their own doorsteps.”
On Stage 1 riders will race from Beverley to Settle. Stage 2 will start in Otley and finish in Doncaster. Stage 3 on Sunday 1 May, the longest of the three stages, will see riders battle it out over a challenging 198km from Middlesbrough, via Whitby, to a grand finale in Scarborough. The full route can be viewed on the official website www.letour.yorkshire.com
