'Decision has been made so let's be positive'
EAST Riding Council leader Stephen Parnaby was saddened to hear the Tour de France will not be passing through.
But he said its start in Leeds was still good for the region.
Councillor Parnaby said: "It's disappointing but the organisers have to set routes that will work.
"I want to be positive. People in Hull and the East Riding will still have an opportunity to see the tour and hopefully other cycling events will be developed around it for us to be included in."
