Tour de Yorkshire - business support

Find out how your business can benefit at one of our special Tour de Yorkshire roadshows

Last time the Tour de Yorkshire came to Selby,  around 10,000 people came to watch. We’re expecting large crowds once again and we hope our businesses will make the most of the opportunity the Tour de Yorkshire presents. There are lots of ways to get involved – from decorating your shop front to the land art that can be seen by the race and television helicopters.

Businesses located in the centre of Selby will see huge numbers in the area as spectators come to see the race. The main spectator area for the finish event will be along Gowthorpe and the Market Place area in front of Selby Abbey.

Find out more here about what you can and can't do with the Tour de Yorkshire brand within your own business.  Could you create a race-themed product, or decorate your shop, pub or cafe?

We expect Welcome to Yorkshire to recognise the best dressed areas once again this year.  Find out more about the 2018 winners.  Let's work together to make our area stand out.  It's not just Selby itself, the race also goes through Escrick, Stillingfleet, Cawood and Thorpe Willoughby.

We’re looking at organising additional parking areas to help as visitors come to Selby. Details of these ‘park and stride’ options will be available nearer the time.

If your business is on the route you may be affected by temporary road closures. You may need to plan ahead for deliveries. Some properties along Gowthorpe may be affected directly by longer closures.  We'll be contacting you directly once details have been confirmed.  Most of the race route in the district will see rolling road closures. This means sections of the road will be closed for around 45 minutes to one hour at a time. The riders have a police escort around the route to make the temporary closures.
