Giro d’Italia is coming to Northern Ireland – Get Inspired, Get Cycling and Win with Activ8

Sport Northern Ireland’s Activ8 Wildcats Twist and Bounce are in need of new cycling jerseys in time for the Giro d’Italia Big Start (9-11 May 2014) and we are inviting all primary school children to help us design two new shirts – one for Twist and one for Bounce!

The race starts on Friday 9 May with a time trial around Belfast. On Saturday, the race travels from Belfast up the North Coast and back. On Sunday the tour moves to start in Armagh with a final destination of Dublin. The tour will then fly off to Italy to complete the race in Trieste on the 1 June.

The focus of the cycling world will be on Northern Ireland, so Twist and Bounce want to make sure they look their very best to help us promote cycling as a fun active activity for everone to enjoy. The two winning designs will be made into t-shirts for Twist and Bounce in time for the Giro d’Italia Big Start, with a commemorative picture for the winning designers. A range of other fantastic prizes will also be available including a schools activity pack, and a visit from the Activ8 Wildcats and the Activ8 Cycle squad.
