The local cycling community will come together at the final of the White Rose League for youth cycling on September 27 featuring the region’s best young riders.

Mark Ragan, school director of community sport, says: “There’ll be a special event pitting teachers from the school against trainers from Pedalsport and a local council cycling team.

“Racing will begin at 9.00am for novice go-racers, the teachers around 11am and youth racing for the best young riders around the north will begin at 12 noon.

“It will be a great spectacle so come and watch, you may see some Tour De France riders of the future.”
