Tour de Yorkshire

Helping bring world-class cycling to Yorkshire

The annual road race attracts some of the world’s best riders and we’re delighted to be an official partner and sponsor of the coveted points classification sprinter jersey. The green sprinter jersey is worn by the rider who totals the most sprint points at every stage of the Tour.

Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries is also the official stage 3 partner which is a great opportunity to showcase the fantastic work that the bike libraries do across the communities of Yorkshire. This, coupled with our sponsorship of the sprinter jersey, helps demonstrate our commitment to increasing access to cycling across the county.
