Bingley Grammar School

Tour de Yorkshire Launch Event

On Friday 02 Dec we were invited to take a group of students to the official launch event to announce the route of the Tour de Yorkshire 2017.

We were asked to take part in a choreographed celebration of cycling in City Park as part of a Peloton of 150 other cyclists.

Mr Farnaby, Mrs Hannam and Mr Jenkins escorted our student cyclists and enjoyed a fantastic morning there.

The group also met the Director of the Tour de France, Christian Prudhomme, who had attended the event to announce the three stages of the Tour de Yorkshire which takes place next April.

All our students were a credit to the school and represented us fantastically at this high profile event.

We now offer cycling as part of our PE curriculum which is hugely popular with the students and the group of Yr 7 and 8 cyclists was chosen from Mr Farnaby’s after school cycling club which meets every Thursday after school. If you would like to join the cycling club please contact Mr Farnaby.
