With huge demand for places, the Tour de Yorkshire Ride is set to be one of the most talked about sportives of 2015.

If you can’t wait to find out if you’ve made if through the ballot or have left it too late to apply then there is a way to win one of 10 guaranteed free tickets to ride.

All you have to do is visit the this year’s Welcome to Yorkshire conference, Y 15, at Scarborough Spa from 10am on Wednesday March 18.

Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “This is a fantastic chance for people to ride this iconic route and we hope it will, as part of the legacy of the Grand Départ, get more people of all ages and all abilities cycling.”

Welcome to Yorkshire’s annual Y conference event will this year focus on the first year of the Tour de Yorkshire which is on May 1-3. There will be news about other great events coming to Yorkshire in 2015 and details of how Welcome to Yorkshire will keep the county in the spotlight.

The Tour de Yorkshire Ride is a unique opportunity for sportive riders in the UK to experience the Tour de France legacy and to pave the way for the pro riders. The sportive will take place on the same day and roads as the 3rd and final stage of the Tour de Yorkshire pro ride (Sunday, 3rd May).

To be in with a chance of one of 10 free places in the Tour de Yorkshire Ride simply register at and submit your printed ticket on the day at the conference’s Welcome to Yorkshire stand and you could be a winner. Entries will be drawn after the event closes on March 18 2015.
