Huddersfield Criterium – Town Centre Cycle Event

Once again Huddersfield, is to host a spectacular evening of cycling fun, which will be free for all to watch. The event is organised by local cycling enthusiasts Dave Sowerby & Martyn Bolt.

From 6-9pm the streets of the town centre will be buzzing with high speed action and thousands of spectators, for this popular style of cycling. Otley has held this type of event for nearly 30 years with traders reporting more business than New Year’s Eve, with no anti-social behaviour issues so make sure your town centre business is ready to benefit?

Full details of the event are on the web site where individuals can view video of last year’s inaugural event, this year’s course and details of sponsors and charity partners.

Hudds Criterium

Posters for the event will be circulated shortly but this is by way of advance notice so businesses can consider staffing, if your local businesses benefit from the footfall. This is to also make local residents and businesses aware of the route of the race circuit, as road closure orders will be in place for the event safety.

There are a number of sponsorship and support opportunities for local businesses , which are all on the website, These start from only £250 for one of the 3 metre by 1 metre barrier adverts you can see in the photo, or £200 for an advert in the event programme, proceeds of which are going to the charity partner and other local groups

The organisors hope you will enjoy the evening and help make this an annual event for Huddersfield!

To support the event, see sponsor pack.
