The contest, part of events leading up to this year’s Tour de Yorkshire in the Borough of Scarborough on Saturday 4 May, is for local children in Key Stage 2, aged 7 to 11 years old.

Entrants are being asked to draw a picture on a theme of ‘Riding your Bike’ or ‘The Bicycle Race’.

The winner of the exciting competition will have their drawing expanded to the size of two double decker buses to feature in a giant piece of land art.
