Cycle signs created for Tour de... Yorkshire

Leeds City College students created signs to be put up along route of the opening stage of the Tour de France through Yorkshire.

Keighley Brewery Timothy Taylor commissioned the college to create more than 30 cycle-shaped signs.

They were cut from plywood, sanded and painted by eight level two electrical engineering students in a college workshop.

The signs will displayed outside the brewery’s pubs that will be passed by competitors on the tour in Skipton, Keighley and Leeds on July 5 and 6.

Chris Stott, the college’s business operations and sales manager, said: “It has been a great experience for all involved, and everyone is looking forward to seeing the signs in place and potentially spotting some of them on TV [during coverage of the race].”
