Have You Got What It Takes To Be A Tour De Yorkshire Tour Maker?

I was an Olympic Games Maker back in 2012 (can you believe it’s now nearly 7 years ago?!) and had a wonderful experience. The Olympics won’t be coming back to Britain anytime soon (and post-Brexit, you can’t blame them…), but every year the organisers of the Tour de Yorkshire are on the lookout for their own ‘Tour Makers’.

With 100 days to go until the fifth edition of the Tour de Yorkshire, Welcome to Yorkshire has revealed the top 10 qualities they are searching for when recruiting Tour Makers.

They are looking for people who are:

  • Passionate about Yorkshire
  • Welcoming
  • Reliable
  • Friendly
  • Fun
  • Organised
  • Approachable
  • Caring
  • Enthusiastic
  • Energetic

This year’s race takes place between Thursday May 2nd – Sunday May 5th. The men’s action runs across the full four days while the Asda Tour de Yorkshire Women’s Race takes place on the Friday and Saturday.

1,300 volunteer Tour Makers are needed to help make sure the event runs smoothly and ensure every spectator gets a fantastic Yorkshire welcome.

Tour Makers are vitally important to the success of the race, acting as ambassadors for both the Tour and the county, as well as promoting diversity and inclusion at the event. There are a number of exciting roles on offer and full details on how to apply can be found by following this link.
