Warwickshire County Council launches Aviva Women’s Tour in Warwickshire schools information, which includes competition to design the trophy and starters flag for the Warwickshire stage on Thursday 16th June.

Get their imagination in gear

Primary school children in Warwick and Stratford districts are being encouraged to get creative and enter a competition to win fantastic prizes.

Warwickshire County Council wants them to design a trophy fit for a world class cyclist. All they need to do is use this template, their imagination, and any materials or colours they want.

The winning design will be interpreted, or scanned onto the first place trophy ofStage Two of the Aviva Women’s Tour 2016.

The winning child will get

  • to present their trophy to the Warwickshire stage winner on Thursday 16th June,
  • a goody bag,
  • free bikeability training for their whole class, and
  • a school visit from UK and European Champion Pro–BMX stunt riderKeelan Phillips who will do a special demonstration and teach some of his cool tricks.

Information on how to enter can be found at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/womens-tour/competitions

Back to the start

But that doesn’t mean pupils from

  • North Warwickshire,
  • Nuneaton,
  • Bedworth, and
  • Rugby

won’t have a chance to get creative and win all those great prizes too. Instead of a trophy, they will be designing the starting flag.

The winner of this competition will be waving their flag to start the race in Atherstone on Thursday 16th June.

Like the trophy design they can use any colours and materials they want, but the flag should be drawn on a clean, landscape, sheet of A4 paper.

Set a Guinness World Record

Some schools will be invited to Warwick Castle on Wednesday 8th June for a Guinness World Record attempt, to create the world’s biggest human image of a bicycle. These pupils will also explore the castle afterwards.

In addition to the great competitions and event, there is a range of activities that schools can do to mark the arrival of elite, women cyclists in Warwickshire, and promote the health benefits of cycling.

Pupils can:

  • Take on the tour by cycling in teams on a grass racing track developed by Northern Warwickshire Active Community Foundation.
  • Decorate a bike in the Women’s Tour colours to display outside their school.
  • Create unique cycle art using recycled bike and craft materials.
