for the first time.

It has be­come a well-es­tab­lished tra­di­tion for towns and vil­lages on route to get cre­ative with all things blue and yel­low, so Fi­ley is con­tin­u­ing the tra­di­tion by hold­ing a com­pe­ti­tion for the best dressed premises.

Whether premises are on the ac­tual route or not, and whether peo­ple like cy­cling or not, the plan is to en­cour­age ev­ery­one to be cre­ative and have fun.

Heather Richard­son from Fi­ley Tourism As­so­ci­a­tion said: “As some­one who lives in Fi­ley and runs a B&B in the town, I know what an amaz­ing com- mu­nity we have. The Tour de York­shire is a chance to show our beau­ti­ful town at its best, not just to those who come to watch the race on the day, but to the rest of the world through the amaz­ing TV cov­er­age that the event gets.”

Cllr Mike Cock­er­ill, who rep­re­sents Fi­ley on the Bor­ough Coun­cil said: “We are de­lighted to see that Fi­ley busi­nesses and res­i­dents are com­ing to­gether to em­brace and wel­come the Tour de York­shire this year. The event will not only en­able us to show­case our beau­ti­ful town to the world but it will also give us the op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote the health ben­e­fits of cy­cling and bring the com­mu­nity to­gether to be cre­ative and have fun at the same time.”
