Tour de Yorkshire Legacy Event

Students from St. Mary’s, Menston took part in a Tour de Yorkshire legacy event. Over three days, children and young people from 160 schools across Yorkshire are taking part in a cycling relay to celebrate National Bike Week. The baton will travel 400 miles from the start in Pickering, North Yorkshire to its final destination in Millennium Square, Leeds. The event aims to encourage more young people to take up cycling by promoting it as a fun way to travel to school and to promote an active lifestyle whilst improving air quality and reducing congestion outside schools.

Students from Tranmere Park Primary School escorted the baton to St. Mary’s where students and staff really embraced the event. The group were welcomed by a live band and over 100 students and staff waving bunting. The baton was then transported by St. Mary’s students to Rawdon Littlemoor Primary School, accompanied by Mr Thornton, Miss Mallinson, representatives from Cycle Leeds and West Yorkshire Police.

Well done to our cyclists!
