Although the route of the race doesn’t pass through East Yorkshire, the fact that Yorkshire is hosting the race is great news for the entire region. The influx of visitors can only be good news for businesses across the region and I’m sure many of them will extend their stay and take time to see what else this wonderful part of the world has to offer.”
