Tour Of Britain Design Competition!

Gateshead welcomes the return of Britain’s biggest professional cycle race, the Tour of Britain on the 10th of September! The route will head through the Pennines before Gateshead plays host to its first stage finish at the Angel of the North since the 2009 Tour of Britain. This will also mark back-to-back appearances in the race for the town, which hosted the start of stage four in 2019.

The Competition

In order to celebrate this world class event coming to Gateshead on the 10th September, we are challenging school pupils to design their very own cycle jersey.

The theme for the jersey design is climate change and how active travel can make a huge difference to improve air quality. With climate change being a key priority for Gateshead, we would love to see your ideas of a jersey design which support this!

Designs should capture anything important that relates to climate change and active travel and you can even relate it back to Gateshead!


There are three age categories for this competition; ages 4-7, 8-11 and 12-14. The winner from each category will receive a voucher and the overall winner will have the opportunity for their design to be displayed on a big screen at the finish line of the event AND win a bike of their own!

Deadline for entries is the 20th August!
