The East Riding is gearing up to host some of the world’s top para-cyclists to the area next month and businesses, community representatives and residents are invited to a roadshow in Beverley to find out about how to get involved.
On Saturday, 21 September, and running alongside the 2019 UCI Road World Championships, Beverley will host the start of the 2019 Para-Cycling International which will see world class athletes leave Saturday Market and race through Bishop Burton, Market Weighton, Holme on Spalding Moor, Foggathorpe and Bubwith to the finish in Harrogate.
In order for local communities to get involved on the day, event organisers Yorkshire 2019, in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council, are holding a free roadshow to give residents, businesses and community groups the opportunity to learn about the event and how they can get involved.
Those attending will see a short presentation which will include information about the route as well as the fun and free events which are planned for Saturday Market on the day of the race.
Councillor Richard Burton, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “The Yorkshire 2019 Para-Cycling International will have world-class athletes taking part, some of whom will be looking for qualifying times for the Tokyo Olympics next year.
“We want local communities along the route to get involved and give these cyclists a very warm East Riding welcome and this roadshow will give people ideas as to how they can take part and make the event a success.”
The roadshow will take place between 6.30pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday, 3 September at East Riding Theatre, 10, Lord Roberts’ Road, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 9BE.
