HORNSEA and surrounding villages are celebrating after the news that the Tour de Yorkshire will passing through again this year. Community groups, schools, and individuals spent hours decorating the route when the race passed through in 2018 with Hornsea being awarded the title of 'Best Dressed Town'. Community groups, businesses and schools all came together to paint bikes which were hung from various vantage points, while land art projects and other eye-catching installations such as decorated wheels, lobster pots and street signs were everywhere you looked

Councillor Richard Burton, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "The route announcement is fantastic news for the East Riding as the eyes of the cycling world will be on us as we host the start of the 2020 Tour de Yorkshire. Beverley is no stranger to hosting the start of the race and I am sure, once again, fans will come out in force not just for the start but along the route, to cheer the peloton on. It's also exciting to see the race going through villages who have never seen the Tour de Yorkshire before and I encourage all communities to get into the spirit of things and decorate their towns and villages in support of this event. The race will showcase the East Riding to audiences both at home and abroad and put it on the map as a must-visit destination."
