ORGANISERS of the Tour de Yorkshire later this month say the preceding publicity caravan will be three times bigger this year - and feature some of the county’s best-loved brands.

The caravan will travel ahead of the riders each day of the race in a parade of specially decorated vehicles to excite the crowds and hand out freebies and keepsakes. It will be in Tadcaster at about noon on Saturday April 29 before the race starts on the repaired bridge.
