Belle Vue Square pedals Tour numbers

04/06/14

Info-graphics in the Tour colours, black and yellow, provide passers-by with interesting facts about the famous race.

The graphics have been designed by Nic Butcher of Nic Draper Design.  Nic has been commissioned jointly by the owners of Belle Vue Square, Rushbond and Craven District Council, whose main offices are located there.

"Rushbond and the Council wanted not only to celebrate the Tour de France but to tell people more about it at the same time" said Catherine Johnson, the Council's Arts Development Officer.  "Nic Butcher came up with the idea of info-graphics as a way of achieving this".

"The statistics around the Tour are truly awe-inspiring.  This is a very special opportunity for the Town, and for Yorkshire, to celebrate this remarkable event and I hope the graphics provoke much thought and interest", commented Mark Finch, Director of Real Estate at Rushbond.

More information about the Tour de France will be on display as part of the Bikes Legs Action! Exhibition at Craven Museum & Gallery in Skipton from 13 June to 20 September.  The Tour de France Trophy will also be on display during this exhibition for two days only: 13 and 14 June.  More information at www.cravenmuseum.org
