THIS time last month the world's top cyclists were whizzing through the county and to celebrate the occasion, voting is now open for the land art competition.

The 2019 UCI Road World Championships were a huge hit with audiences and many communities across North Yorkshire created impressive giant land art to welcome the event.

The Northern Echo:

Those who entered the land art competition saw their giant creations being beamed to an estimated global TV audience of 250 million people and ten of the best are now being put to a public vote.

These include Carperby near Richmond where a huge rainbow jersey sat alongside a typically Yorkshire greeting “Ey Up” Carperby.

The Northern Echo:

A giant soldier at Catterick Garrison also makes the final as does Northallerton where a cycling-inspired ‘Northallerton Welcomes the World’ grass painting took local schoolchildren two weekends to complete.

Yorkshire 2019 CEO Andy Hindley said: “It was an incredibly tough job compiling the shortlist because we had so many great entries, and we wish the very best of luck to all those who have been shortlisted.”

Vote at before 5pm on November 8.
