Calling all cyclists, communities and Warrington businesses – here’s your chance to win exclusive prizes in the run up to the Tour of Britain!
With the Tour of Britain stage 5 finish in Warrington less than a month away, some fantastic prizes are up-for-grabs through a series of competitions.
The competitions will give Warrington residents and businesses the chance to win VIP tickets to the event village at Bank Park, the opportunity to ride the stage 5 finish line on Thursday 9 September in front of the iconic Golden Gates, or a six month LiveWire membership.
To get involved, all you have to do is send a photo of the official Tour of Britain poster in your business window and you could be in with a chance of winning a prize, including two VIP tickets to the hospitality area at the event village at Bank Park on race day.
Have you tried one of Warrington’s many cycle routes yet? Send a photo of yourself using one of our cycle routes and you could be in with a chance of winning. Prizes include a chance to ride to the stage 5 finish line, a six month LiveWire membership or goodie bags – including top of the range D lock, bike lights, cycle maps and adult cycle training sessions.
Best dressed street
Working in collaboration with the Warrington Guardian, we are launching a ‘best dressed street’ competition. This is a great way to get behind the Tour of Britain, show your support and get your neighbourhood involved and decorate your street. Use bunting, homemade flags and banners – maybe even a land art creation – to showcase Warrington’s ‘best dressed streets’ to millions of TV viewers across the world. You may even be featured in the Warrington Guardian!
Email your pictures to [email protected] or tag your photos on the Warrington Guardian’s Facebook page –facebook.com/warringtonguardian.

“We’re looking forward to seeing all of the entries to the competitions and we hope everyone will get involved in what promises to be a great day for our town.
