Tour de Yorkshire

Helping bring world-class cycling to Yorkshire

The annual event, attracting the world's best riders, is held on roads across Yorkshire and we're delighted to be an official partner and sponsor of the coveted sprinter jersey.

The green sprinter jersey is worn by the rider who totals up the most sprint points at every stage of the Tour so be sure to look out for the green jersey speeding past. This, coupled with our support for the ground-breaking Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries, helps demonstrate our commitment to increasing access to cycling across the county.
