Fife’s school children are being given the opportunity to design the starter flag that will be used to begin the first and only Scottish round of the Halford’s Tour Series race, which is set to take place in Kirkcaldy later this year.
The professional city centre cycling race is a team based televised event that is expected to attract thousands of spectators on Tuesday 15 May where ten top British teams will begin their five week battle to be crowned champions of the Series.
Andrew Lane, Active Schools Co-ordinator was on hand at Pathhead Primary School in Kirkcaldy to launch the competition with some children who will be taking part in the day of supporting events that Active Fife are currently planning.
The route that the cycling race will take through the town centre is currently being finalised and will be revealed later this month along with details of the supporting programme that will be on offer.
