Whitehough Outdoor Centre is launching a very exciting new competition with an incredible prize up for grabs… A brand new children’s mountain bike, plus helmet!

The Apollo Vortice 24” wheel bike is worth £130 and comes in a super cool vibrant red colour – perfect for boys and girls who love to explore the great outdoors.

To enter the competition, children aged 7-11 must design their dream bike! Using a downloadable template – available here – we want children to get as creative as possible.

What colour is your dream bike? Does it have wings? Is it a rocket? Does it have magical powers?! Flex your imaginative muscles and surprise us with your ideas. The most creative bike wins!

The competition launches Wednesday July 8th and will run for three weeks, closing Wednesday 29th July at 5pm.
