Yorkshire-based bicycle event Cycle Expo recently confirmed support from the UK-based tour operator Jet2holidays.
The tour operator will be the headline sponsor of the cycle expo’s travel zone, which will showcase a wide range of companies from organised cycle tours to travel accessories.
Charlotte Scoular from Cycle Expo Yorkshire said: “We are thrilled to have Jet2holidays involved in what will be a mass celebration of cycling and a staple date in Yorkshire’s unrivalled calendar of cycling events.”
Zoe Towers, head of product at Jet2holidays, added: "As the leading tour operator in Yorkshire, we are proud to be sponsoring the county’s first cycle expo. As well as celebrating cycling, attendees will be able to learn more about the range of fantastic holidays for cyclists that we offer across Europe, as well as the special touches that really benefit cyclists such as 32kg bike carriage, and bike transfers to and from hotels that have been handpicked for their cycling facilities."
A partnership between Leeds-based marketing and events specialists XSEM and Welcome to Yorkshire, Cycle Expo Yorkshire will host a number of races, competitions and exhibitors covering all cycling disciplines from BMX to triathlon, road racing to cross country.
