Tour de Yorkshire 2018

The 2018 Tour de Yorkshire will see the race coming through our area again! Saturday 5th May is Stage 3 of the race where the peloton comes through Ryedale before heading into West Ayton, Scarborough, Filey and back to Scarborough for what has now become the iconic finish.

As in past years there are bound to be lots of surprises and excitement along the way. The 2016 Tour de Yorkshire saw Sir Bradley Wiggins unexpectedly pull out of the race on Greenhow Hill coming out of Pateley Bridge, while the 2014 Tour De France: Grand Depart race saw Mark Cavendish crash just before reaching the finish line in Harrogate. One thing is certain though…Yorkshire will put on a good celebration! There was a huge turn out for the race last year, with local communities getting into the spirit of the day and putting on great events and fun activities. In the upcoming months, Mumbler will be keeping you up to date with what is going on, the best places to eat, drink and visit along the route. We will also be listing places to stay for anyone visiting our area for the event. If you want to list your business or promote your event please contact us here

Land Art:
Land Art on Scarborough Hillside
– The Big Bike Beat Band is a giant bike shaped structure accompanied by a team of lively drummers that work with audience members, encouraging them to play along in front of the race day crowds. The Big Bike Beat Band, which will measure 10 metres wide by 3.5 metres tall, plus supporting structure, will be installed on the hillside overlooking the Tour de Yorkshire Stage Three finish line in Scarborough’s North Bay on Saturday 5 May. Between 24 April and the 4 May, The Big Bike Beat Band will tour schools and community locations in Scarborough, Filey & the North York Moors National Park, giving people the chance to interact with and ‘play’ parts of the sculpture whilst at the same time learning about the event, the health benefits of cycling and information surrounding the Bike Library scheme.
