Students make a wheely good impression for Tour of Britain

Reaseheath students created a giant piece of aerial artwork to mark Stage Three of the Tour of Britain passing the Nantwich college’s campus.

About 80 sports performance, adventure sports and public services students formed the moving wheels of a 100 foot long bicycle which had been laid out on a field opposite the college’s entrance on the B5074 Main Road, in Worleston.

The event was timed to coincide with the elite athletes passing the college during Stage Three.

Liam Salt, a Reaseheath sports performance course manager and keen cyclist himself, organised the aerial artwork after seeing similar events marking international competitions abroad.

He said: “This was the students’ first day at college and it was a great opportunity for them to take part in a team building activity with a difference. Reaseheath’s farm manager Mark Roue kindly gave us permission to use the field and also allowed us to use plastic haylage wrap to make the bike frame.

“Awareness of all types of sport is growing thanks to the Rio Olympics and it was a great way for the students to be part of a premier event. The aerial artwork looked amazing and was an exciting activity to mark the race as it passed through Cheshire.”
