Public invited to view Tour de Yorkshire trophies

Friday, 8 March 2019

As part of this year’s visit of the Tour de Yorkshire men’s and women’s trophies to the Borough of Scarborough on Tuesday 12 March, they will be on display for public viewing at the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery in Hunmanby from 2pm until 3pm.

Everyone is welcome, cyclists and non-cyclists, to come along to see the trophies, hear more about them and have their pictures taken with them against the backdrop of the distillery, which is currently producing Yorkshire’s first ever single malt whisky.

The trophies tour, which has been an annual fixture in the borough since Scarborough was first chosen as a host town for the Tour de Yorkshire in 2015, will also be making private visits to Hawsker-cum-Stainsacre C of E VC Primary School in Whitby and the Yorkshire Bank Bike Library in Scarborough’s old Dean Road prison.

This year’s tour around the borough will be jointly hosted by Scarborough Borough Council, North Yorkshire County Council and Tour de Yorkshire organisers, Welcome to Yorkshire.

The gold-plated trophies were designed and made by hand at world leading trophy makers Thomas Fattorini Ltd. The trophies will be transported to each venue in one of Welcome to Yorkshire’s branded cars, complete with the iconic yellow ‘Y’ attached to the roof.
