Tour of Britain
"Close encounters of a cycling kind"
With this year's route taking the tour close to the school, this provided a great opportunity to enable the children to be able to see the race at close quarters.
After the short trip in the minibus the children had a great view of the event. In the build up the children were greeted by a range of police bikes checking the road, the event organisers in their cars and the support cars carrying all the spare cycles who all passed by before or after the cyclists themselves. All were cheered enthusiastically by the children.
With the popularity of the event, there were also camera crews closely following the cyclists, as well as the TV helicopter which was overhead, which made for an afternoon with lots to appreciate!
