Tour of Britain – Exeter

Today saw the girls from last weeks Bike It session that I ran with lovely Liz Kop from Sustrans in Exeter parade their bicycle bling along a section of the Tour of Britain Route in Exeter. The girls looked fabulous in their coloured sashes and feathered helmets.

The girls said that the excitement of the Cyclodelic fashion sessions encouraged them to take up the course.

All thirteen girls from West Exe College have now completed their Level 2 Bikeability with two acheiving Level 3. Proof that fashion really does help get girls on bikes!! Pictures to come soon…

At 7pm we gathered in the VIP area to watch the Exeter stage of the Tour of Britain. It was a thrilling race with Dean Downing winning the evening’s criterium and the Rapha Condor Team winning overall.

The Rapha Condor team have now moved up from third place from the first round and are joint leaders with Candi TV after this evening’s race.

Well done Rapha!! And how super stylish they all looked! We hope to have our own women’s team in the near future that can be as succesful and slick as the Rapha boys…
