In response to today’s announcement from Welcome to Yorkshire about the route for the Tour de Yorkshire 2019, Cllr Tim Swift, Calderdale Council’s Leader said; “Hosting the Tour de Yorkshire is a real honour and I’m delighted to learn that the Piece Hall in Halifax will feature at the start of the fourth day of the race.
“This stage will once again be a great endurance test, featuring some tough terrain with many climbs and several sprints. It is great that this year’s route will showcase other parts of Calderdale, including Savile Park and King Cross, before heading out to Bradshaw and leaving the borough and heading on to Haworth.
“The route will feature some really picturesque scenery which will showcase the borough wonderfully – especially if we’re lucky enough to have weather like last year!
“Of course whatever the weather, the Tour de Yorkshire will be a great four days in Yorkshire and will be a real boost for the local economy and tourism in Calderdale.”
