Tour De Yorkshire

Yorkshire Loves Cycling

After the success of the 2014 Le Tour de France Grand Départ, Welcome to Yorkshire followed up with the Tour de Yorkshire and required a new website to promote the new annual cycling event.

We created a new website with improved content editor experience, user journey and of course a brand new design working with our chosen design partner. The site now boasts rich, image lead content areas, key race and route information with the new toggleable mini maps, pages to showcase host towns and fully interactive maps and animated elevation data to keep keen cycle fans and Yorkshire residents informed about the upcoming event.

Interaction is Key

Harnessing the power of Google maps, we created manageable route maps, while also giving the client the ability to manage listing markers, a new additional revenue stream. On top of this, we developed a JavaScript-based interactive map UI displaying route and elevation data.

We also created a bespoke archiving system which allows the client to display past race information and imagery, along with a flexible menu system to handle any new and changing content now and in the future

We have worked with Outfield Digital on a number of successful high profile projects. Matt and Lucy always go the extra mile to ensure a smooth build process and take the stress out of the detail, which has been vital for all the projects we have worked on together. We require an agency with an excellent track record, which Outfield Digital have. Pete Wilson, Digital Director, Welcome to Yorkshire
