FUCHS SILKOLENE, a leading manufacturer of superior motorcycle and cycle oils, has teamed up with award winning child’s safety charity Cycle-Smart to launch the arty contest.
FUCHS is inviting primary school-aged children to create their very own cycling helmet.
The winning child will have their design made into a real helmet which they can keep. What’s more, five times British and European Trials Champion Danny Butler’s Extreme Mountain Bike Show Team will visit the school or club of the winner to perform a fantastic BMX show.
There will also be prizes for second and third place, including a cycle safety talk from Cycle-Smart.
Sally Travis, marketing manager at FUCHS, said: “For the second year running we are holding the Tour of the Potteries cycle ride, setting off from the FUCHS SILKOLENE headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent on June 25th.
“As part of this event we are proud to launch the Design a Cycling Helmet competition in conjunction with Cycle-Smart.
“Danny Butler and his team put on a fantastic show so that is an amazing prize for the winner. We’ll also have goodies for the runners-up.”
To enter, visit www.silkolene.com/potteries-competition/ to download the helmet template. Children may use any materials they wish to make their design stand out.
Entries must be received by Friday April 28th.
The Tour of the Potteries was a huge success in 2016. This year there will be a 104km (64m) ride and a 44km (27m) ride. There will be full medical and mechanical support on the route, as well as goody bags and finisher medals for entrants.
There is a £5 discount for advance entry before the day and an early bird gift for the first 200 people to sign up. Visit www.wheelsinwheels.comFollow
