Today we have been busy showing our support for the UCI World Road Bike Championships which is being held tomorrow from Doncaster to Harrogate. Every child in school designed a rainbow jersey that could be presented to the winner of the bike race.— Kirk Sandall Junior School (@SchoolKirk) September 26, 2019
