On 28th April 2017, the whole of Burlington Junior School walked down to The Spa Bridlington to witness the start of the Tour de Yorkshire and cheer the riders on. The weather remained fine, with the sun breaking out occasionally to shine on the pupils, whilst eating their packed lunch. There were some unusual vehicles prior to the start, including a Flintstones car, a steampunk vehicle and a robot to name just three. Some of our pupils were lucky enough to ride out in front of the cyclists as mascots for the different teams, an experience I’m sure they will look fondly back on and appreciate the significance in years to come.
Photographs of our decorated wheels can be viewed in the gallery below.
