Richmondshire communities on the route of this year’s Tour de Yorkshire can tap into a £30,000 cash pot set up by district councillors.
The event fund will help to help stage local events to celebrate the race coming through the district in May.
Leyburn town – which hosts finishes for the ladies and men’s races on May 1 will receive £10,000 of the pot.
The remaining £20,000 will be available for other towns and villages on the route.
However, there is a £2,000 limit for each of these applications.
The race starts in Skipton on May 1 and travels through Hawes, Reeth, Grinton and Akebar before arriving in Leyburn market place.
Information on the four day Tour de Yorkshire and the fund is available here.
