Brownlee Brothers pick bike safety poster winner

In 2012, Yorkshire-based athletes, Jonny and Alistair Brownlee shot to stardom with their success at the London Olympics. The triathlon stars have since gone on to both become MBE’s for their contributions to the sport. Carrying on the family tradition, the Brownlee brothers have competed and achieved all there is to achieve and continue to push the boundaries.

The Brownlee brothers agreed to judge a competition that we ran here at Recycle York in an effort to create and drive awareness for bike safety on the road. We set a task to the children of St. Lawrence’s Primary School to design a poster that would be used throughout the city.

As you know, getting people involved with what we do, advocating and promoting not only bike and road safety, but also a ‘fix it’ mentality. We want the next generation to see that with a little time and effort, things can be fixed and maintained rather than discarded and got new. A more circular approach to the way we do things. 

The Brownlee Brothers support triathletes in a way of their foundation, running events, supporting local, grassroots clubs and still competing themselves to promote a better, healthier lifestyle for the younger generation. We were so pleased when they agreed to come on board with our bike safety poster design competition. 

And the winner is....

Out of a very tough selection of entries, the Brownlee Brothers, Alistair and Jonny chose year 6 pupil Laudi Maisha! We were over the moon with the amount of entries and the all of them were fantastic! We could clearly see that the children of St. Lawrence’s knew their stuff! This poster will be displayed around York to help people think more about what to do when they are out and about on their bike.

A big thanks to the Bownlee Brothers!

Recycle York want to thank the Brownlee Brothers for their support in this campaign and in helping us decide the winner for this competition that we ran with St Lawrence’s Primary School. We know they are busy and can appreciate the time it will have took to look through and choose the winner, so thank you lads! It is very much appreciated. 

If you would like to find out more about what we do out in the community, you can do so here, if it’s social media you spend more time on, don’t worry, we are there too on Instagram and Facebook. Jonny and Alistair are both on socials too!
