AN art competition to celebrate this year's Tour de Yorkshire provoked a flurry of creativity at Keighley's Bangladeshi Community Association. (BCA)

People of all ages were invited to take part in the Landmark Art Competition at BCA.

With help from Saira Ali of Bradford Council, Manorlands fundraiser Andrew Wood, staff, parents and pupils from Holycroft Primary School and a community artist, a giant picture of a rickshaw was created.

BCA community engagement co-ordinator, Eyarun Nessa explained this was intended to give the more conventional Tour de Yorkshire bicycle a different cultural twist.

"It was a very challenging piece to produce in such a short space of time but in total more than 100 volunteers came along to bring it together," she

"A special thanks goes out to BCA vice chairman Fatefor-Ali Ruf for working from dusk till dawn to help produce this massive piece of art, which was nearly the size of the BCA's main hall!

"The artwork was placed on Windsor Road, Oakworth, for the day the Tour de Yorkshire passed through and was captured by ITV4 live as well as seen by plenty of spectators.

"As well as Saira and Andrew, community activists Ashraf Miah and Babul Miah and councillors Fulzar Ahmed and Nasir Ali were present with the artwork to represent those who had made it.

"Back at BCA in Kensington Street, along with welcoming the Tour, we held a healthy day to plan for the holy month of Ramadan.

"This featured healthy cook and eat sessions and a smoothie bike challenge using a bike kindly given by Parkwood Youth Centre.

"Children also grew their own vegetables. Medals were given out to reward the fastest smoothie maker and for the best Tour De Yorkshire themed hanging basket."
