Tour of Britain Bikes

The excitement is mounting as Tour of Britain orange bikes are erected around Sandbach to help promote the Tour's arrival on Tuesday 6 September 2016. Nine bikes are now in place at the key gateways to the town.
There were several trips to the tip to get hold of so many old bikes, as one or two just wouldn't have made enough impact.  The Town Clerk thanked Cllr Lowe for her persistence in ensuring the Town has a good display and the operational staff involved with putting them into place.  Cllr Carolyn Lowe commented " I'm most grateful to Garth Taylor of G. Taylor Motor Vehicle Repairs and Chris Lowe for  spraying the bikes in the official colour. There were rather a lot to paint".  

The bikes will be in place until after the Day of Dance on 10th September.
