Major cycling events to arrive in Torbay

Cycling enthusiasts might want to think about booking some time away in Torbay this year, as two major two-wheeled events are set to take place in the region.

First up is the return of the professional Tour Series, bringing some of the best riders in the country to Torquay on May 28th. This will be followed by a series of British Cycling Sky Rides from May through until September. Members of the public will be able to take part in 25 mass-participation cycling events across the area, with all ages and abilities catered for.

Torbay mayor Gordon Oliver said the town had been very pleased with the success of last year's Tour Series event and promising things are expected this year. He told the Herald Express: "The event has grown significantly and promises to be even more exciting this year. There will be an event village on Torre Abbey Meadows with many different activities and displays throughout the day while the community races take place.

"The excitement will carry on through to the evening when we will see the professional riders take to the circuit to give a spectacular show."

The growth of cycling in the region comes at a time when the council is considering a plans for a £1.6million velodrome and 1.5km outdoor off-road circuit at Paignton's Clennon Valley. If you want to take part in some of these events, why not look into booking some great-value accommodation with YHA?
