The Women’s Tour

On the 8th May 2014 fourteen of our children and staff/ parents went to Hinckley to see the world’s top female cyclists racing through Hinckley on route to Bedford as part of stage 2 of their competition.

The children got to meet Lucy Garner who is part of the Great British cycling team. She is 19 years old and from Cosby. The children also got to watch the riders warm up and prepare for their race. There were lots of TV and radio crew there covering the race, the children were lucky enough to be interviewed by BBC Radio 2.

The trip has been a really good opportunity to show the children that cycling is a well-recognised sport for men and women and has many followers and supporters. All the children that went on the trip have passed there biking ability level 2.
