Leeds City Council comment on the Tour de Yorkshire finale
Leeds City Council Leader Councillor Judith Blake said:
“What an incredible four days it has been for Leeds and for Yorkshire. It was excellent to see the people of Leeds turn out in their thousands in the sunshine and give the riders an electric reception when they arrived at the finish line on the Headrow.
“Well done to those who competed and a big thank you to everyone who got involved and helped to make this year’s Tour de Yorkshire finale the best yet.
“Hosting the Tour de Yorkshire gives us the opportunity to showcase Leeds to the world and encourages investment in the city, but it also inspires people of all ages and abilities to cycle more, something that we are really passionate about in Leeds.”
