Tour d’Arts Alive Team Prize 2017 Update:

In 2017 we have decided that in addition to the main team prize, and to support the  friendly ethos of the event, we are offering a special team for any group of five riders riding together under a team name who start and finish any route together. So get together, saddle up and have a great day out.

Why not get a village, work or panto team together?


2016 -We had 19 teams competing for the Team Prize last year.  The winners were the Luctonians who crossed the line with 10 team members.  Well done them for sticking together and supporting each other all the way around – here they are at Bucknell food stop:


This was great fun in 2015!  Get together with friends and think up a name for your team, bring a group from your club – either way we want to encourage groups to support each other all the way around.

The biggest team to finish together will be presented with our craftsman-made Team Prize plate – you can keep it for a year.



  1. Tell us that you are in a team – there’s an opportunity to give us the team name when you enter, if you forget please tell us via email before the event day
  2. Ride together and finish together – new rule for 2016 – we count you at the finish (a team of 6 that splits up during the ride with 4 finishing together and another 2 coming in later will be counted as 4 towards the Team Prize)
  3. Consider wearing matching tops, or some other identifying mark (on you or on your bikes) so we can see you are in a team
  4. Important – no additions on the event day, organise your team before the 26th
  5. How to Win – prize goes to the biggest team to finish together, if there’s a tie then the prize will be shared.
  6. Have fun and help each other.

How to do it:

  • Perhaps before you enter discuss with friends/club mates what you’re going to call the team
  • Remind all team members to enter the team name when they sign up for the event
  • If anyone forgets to say they are in the team please email us so we can update our records

On the event day please ride together helping all team members get around.  When you finish make sure the finish line judge knows you are a team and how many have finished together – that’s why wearing an identifying mark or clothing would help.
