Tour de Yorkshire 2017 Roadshows

January 26, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Residents and businesses across Yorkshire are being invited to a series of Tour de Yorkshire roadshows as the county gears up to host the major international cycle race.

This roadshow, delivered by Welcome to Yorkshire and Calderdale Council, is a great opportunity to come along and find out more about what is happening in Halifax and across the region during the Tour.

Calderdale welcomes the third stage of the race on Sunday 30 April, this time through the lower valley. Entering the borough from Bradford at Northowram, the race descends towards Stump Cross before turning right and past the Shibden Mill Inn. Cyclists will then make the sharp, steep, cobbled ascent up Lee Lane, more commonly known as Shibden Wall, a steep climb of almost 1km, with at 15.5% gradient. The race will then head down towards Halifax, skirt the town and ascend up Beacon Hill Road and out towards Southowram. Riders will then race towards Brighouse, through the town and out through Clifton before entering Kirklees.

The session will include a short presentation, detailed information of the new route, advice on how to make the most of this world-class event and a Q&A opportunity. They will also give advice around brand guidelines and how your business and community can make the most of the opportunity.
