Get involved

The Tour of Britain gives people the opportunity to watch some of the world’s best cyclists as they pass through the district of Bassetlaw.

Residents, schools, landowners, community groups and businesses are all encouraged to get involved and help Bassetlaw look its very best.

By getting involved you can hold an event or even create some eye-catching land art that could be spotted by helicopter TV cameras as the race winds its way through our district’s spectacular scenery, landmarks and sites of historical significance.

Ideas for land art include:

  • Dress up your fencing with bunting, banners 
  • Mowing a giant shape/image into a hill or field
  • Painting old, unwanted bikes yellow and putting them out on display
  • Creating giant posters or banners on buildings along the route 
  • Colourful flower displays in the shape of a bicycle in gardens
  • Share your photographs of your creative displays on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #NottsToB
  • Getting inspiration from last year's Tour of Britain land art

Here are just some of the the wonderful things people did in 2017.

 

Schools 

Local schools should soon receive an education pack from Nottinghamshire County Council.

The education pack is filled with ideas for how school children can get involved, learn to cycle safely and enjoy the tour as it speeds through our district.
