Tour de France Education Pack

Yorkshire is getting into gear with the launch of the first ever Tour de France school’s resource pack - for teachers, community leaders and parents of young people aged from 7 to 14 - with the help of two of Yorkshires cycling stars, Dean and Russell Downing.

The free pack is the first initiative to be showcased as part of the region’s commitment to building a 10 year cycling legacy in Yorkshire under the newly established Cycle Yorkshire banner.

The educational pack ties into the National Curriculum for Key Stages 2 and 3. It includes lesson plans for Art & Media, Design Technology, French, Geography, History, ICT, Literacy, Maths, Music, PHSE, Science and PE.

The 101st running of Le Tour will start in Leeds on July 5 with a 190km stage taking the riders to the spa town of Harrogate. Stage 2 will start from York with the riders tackling a 200km stage with climbs including Holme Moss on the way to Sheffield.
