    Doncaster Council is inviting local businesses to share the Tour de Yorkshire spirit with the launch of a best dressed window competition to celebrate the major cycling event’s return to Doncaster in May.

    Doncaster has hosted the TDY in 2016 and 2018 and on each occasion, local people have risen to the creative challenge with eye catching yellow and blue land art, bunting and bike decorations to help welcome the world’s elite cyclists to the borough.

    2019 looks set to be another exciting year as the major international cycling event is back on Thursday 2nd May when we host the start of stage 1 of the men’s race, beginning in the newly refurbished market square which will showcase the historic market to the world. Cyclists will then ride out past the Mansion House, Hallgate, Christ Church and then over St George’s Bridge on to the A19. The route then goes through Bentley, Toll Bar, Owston, Askern, Campsall and Norton.

    The best dressed window competition is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses in the town centre and all along the route to get involved and showcase their shops and creative talents on a Tour de Yorkshire theme – plus there will be some great prizes.

    The competition is divided into three categories:
    - Best dressed business window overall
    - Best dressed business window town centre
    - Best dressed business window along the route

    The entries will be considered by an independent judging panel before the winners are announced in April.

    Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “This year, for the first time we’re hosting a start which will begin in our historic market place before riding out to the north of the borough – this is a fantastic opportunity for our town centre businesses and those on the route to be part of this exhilarating event watched by an global audience and to really go to town on making their window displays as bright and striking as possible.
    “Every time we’ve hosted the Tour de Yorkshire, the creative efforts of our local businesses and communities have been a pleasure to behold – and I can’t wait to see what people come up with this year.”

    The deadline for entries is Friday 12 April.
