Welcome to Yorkshire are looking to recruit Tour Makers to help welcome spectators to the Tour de Yorkshire

Organisers of the Tour de Yorkshire are on the hunt for a host of volunteers to help out over the race weekend and make the event run as smoothly as possible.

The Tour Makers, Welcome to Yorkshire’s version of the London 2012’s Games Makers, will play a part in the race and be the welcoming face of Yorkshire for the huge number of spectators expected.

In order to register your interest in becoming a Tour Maker, which requires you to be available on race weekend (April 29-May 1) and for a police-led training session in the build-up, you need to fill in the survey at this link.

For the third year, Welcome to Yorkshire will also be running a series of roadshows around the county to share information about getting involved, build local excitement and maximise the benefits of media coverage.

“This is the third year we’ve gone out to local communities to share information about how the race works and to discuss how businesses and communities can make it a spectacular weekend,” said Sir Gary Verity, Welcome to Yorkshire chief executive.

“The feedback from the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire was extremely positive and I’d encourage everyone on the route, particularly those in areas the race hasn’t visited before, to come along and find out how to make it your Tour.”
