Plans for this year’s Tour de Bridlington are starting to take shape with many clubs and individuals signing up to take part and support the annual event.
Headlands School is once again the venue and the day has been announced as 29th June. The date also coincides with the town’s Armed Forces Day and both groups have come together to provide as what is being billed as a fantastic community day for Bridlington.
Organiser for the Tour, David Stamper from Headlands School, explained: “We will have our usual brilliant community groups along with the addition of a few more – one of which being ‘Bridlington Heart Screening Day’. We are really proud to include these in the event as they look to continue their amazing work in giving people the opportunity to attend free Heart Screening days in the area.”
The events will include a fun run for children and adults, a 10.km run, and the flagship cycle event which involves completing as many 10 mile circuits around the Bridlington area as possible up to 100 miles. There will also be food and entertainment throughout the day in the school grounds.
Said David: “We would also welcome the Hinge Centre who are taking part, and also the Bridlington Echo who will be our media partner for the event.”
Over the years the event has raised £40,000 for the community and the aim is to make it past the £50,000 mark after this year.
“It really would be special to break the £50,000 mark and make a huge difference to our community groups.” added David
