Bedale has been chosen as one of the eight host venues for the 2019 cycling Tour de Yorkshire, which runs from 2-5 May. The announcement that Bedale will host the finish of stage two of the Men's race and Stage one of the Women's race on Friday 3rd May 2019 means that this will be one of the biggest days in the town's history.
Sir Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “It’s always exciting to unveil the host towns for the Tour de Yorkshire and this year is no exception. We’re thrilled that Bedale will be making its debut as the town gave the riders an amazing reception when they passed through earlier this year."
Christian Prudhomme, Director of Tour organisers A.S.O, said: “The Tour de Yorkshire is a true success story and in just four years it has grown to become one of the best attended and most dramatic races on the cycling calendar."
