Hundreds of school children in Bridlington, Driffield and Pocklington will get the chance to see the Tour de Yorkshire Trophies as they go around the county ahead of the third race, which starts in Bridlington on Friday 28th April.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Road Safety Team, working with race organisers Welcome to Yorkshire, has arranged for both the men’s and women’s Y-shaped trophies to visit the schools on Monday 27th March.
Special assemblies will take place and the children will be able to see the trophies up close, find out more about the race and ask any questions.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The council is proud to again be involved in the Tour de Yorkshire and has secured its long-term involvement with the race until 2019.
“The trophy tour has become something of an annual tradition and, by taking the prize into schools, the council aims to engage with school children and encourage them to participate in the event and take up cycling.
“Excitement for this year’s race is starting to build, especially in Driffield and Pocklington that will be on the route for the first time.”
The trophies will visit Driffield Junior School on Monday 27th March from 12:05-12:25pm.
