How would you design a bicycle stand to celebrate the world’s biggest cycle race coming to your town?

This is the question North Yorkshire Society of Architects asked 666 local primary school children aged between 8 and 11 years in architectural workshops that resulted in a design competition.

An exhibition of the imaginative entries sees shelters shaped like bicycle helmets, giant Yorkshire puddings squirting out gravy and a solitary sheep standing in a field of white Yorkshire roses.

10 year old William Hunt’s winning design inspired by the steep terrain of the Yorkshire Dales, fabricated at full size by Stage One the Yorkshire based company who built the 2012 Olympic Cauldron, will stand proudly next to the exhibition.

We also invite you to take inspiration from the children’s work, explore your own imagination, encapsulate the spirit of Yorkshire and respond to the excitement surrounding this momentous occasion by designing your very own BikeBay! Architects will be available to give you a helping hand.
