Dickies Sponsors Children of Tour of Britain

Dickies is proud to have sponsored the t-shirts for the Bath and North East Somerset school children this past September. The children led out the riders at the Friends Life Tour of Britain stage which departed from Bath on Friday the 12th of September 2014.

The Tour of Britain is the biggest, professional, cycle race in the UK. It is also England's largest free-to-spectate sporting event. The SweetSpot Group revived the race in 2004 after a 5 year break from the UK's sporting calendar. 

SweetSpot, the Friends Life Tour of Britain organisers, teamed up with Bath & North East Somerset Council for the Start Stage Six of The Tour.  More than 40 children from Bath and North East Somerset schools were nominated to lead out the race.

Cllr David Dixon, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods added:  “Bath & North East Somerset Council would like to thank Dickies, for supplying T-shirts for the 40 plus school children and their chaperones at the start of the race.  It was a pleasure to work with Dickies and their support was very much appreciated.”
