The organisers of the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race will be hosting a community roadshow in the town between 6pm-8pm on Monday 9 March. The event, being held at the Evron Centre, will offer residents, businesses and community groups advice on how groups and individuals can benefit from the race. It represents a great opportunity to find out more about what is happening in Filey and across Yorkshire during the Tour.
Those interested in attending can register their interest via the Tour de Yorkshire website, or simply turn up on the evening. As previously revealed on our website, the route will be travelling via Muston Road, Station Avenue and Scarborough Road. Unfortunately, due to the south-north direction of the race it is impossible to use the seafront, as there might be a danger that the race leaders would end up crossing the path of the trailing riders as the race would have to double-back on itself. However, the race director has intimated that it is highly likely that the race will revisit Filey in coming years and, if the route is from north to south, the seafront would almost certainly be utilised. The incredible scenes on the Crescent Hill in 2018 are still firmly etched on the minds of the organisers.
The Tour de Yorkshire will pass through Filey on 30 April. It is part of stage one of the men’s race which is travelling from Beverley to Redcar.
