The Tour of Britain schools pack, containing everything you need to know to get your school involved in this year’s race, is now available to download.

Britain’s most prestigious cycle race is an ideal event to encourage children to get active and teach them about the importance of healthy lifestyles. It is also an opportunity to introduce children to a sport they may have previously been unaware of.

Furthermore, watching the race at the road side is always very inspiring and exciting for children – many schools line the routes of the race to watch the world’s best riders in action each year.

Simply complete the below form to receive the 2022 schools pack.

The intention of our pack is to provide schools with information and background to the Tour of Britain cycle race, as well as providing ideas of ways schools can get their pupils involved with the race and incorporate cycling into their education calendar.

Encourage pupils to learn about the sport and, as the race is an international event, link it in to other subjects in school – geography, foreign languages, maths and more. Before race day, children could create signs, banners or flags they can use to cheer on the riders.

Be sure to get in touch with your local council to see if they are running any official competitions for schools in collaboration with the race.
