tour de yorkshire: blog post by roisin gorry (member of the cycle academy) saturday 4th may 2019 (photos courtesy of Josh Harrison Photography, joshharrisonmedia.com)
On Saturday morning Bridlington was buzzing and so were we as we met in the morning for the initial team meeting.
Seeing everyone wearing the club kit really made me feel part of the R-evolution cycling team and it was amazing to go on the same stage that the top male cyclists would also later be on and have Marc Chavet present our new club to the Bridlington crowds!
We then had an unexpected meeting with a group of Bridlington schoolchildren who were interested in what we did while we were at the club and why we were wearing shoes that made us walk in such a funny way. We even had requests to sign t shirts.
Then the highlight of the day...cycling out together from the Tour start line with the crowds cheering and then watching the elite cyclists go past at a slightly faster pace!
What a memorable day!
