WRITTLE College is planning a huge landscape artwork that can be viewed from helicopters following the Tour de France when it comes to town next month.

The College – which is about to launch a Foundation degree in Cycling Performance – is creating the giant image of a racing cyclist out of more than 300 bales of hay in a field on its grounds near to Roxwell Road.

It was designed by Contemporary Art and Design degree student Georgina Elizabeth, following a competition ahead of the race on Monday, July 7.

Georgina, 29, from Holland-on-Sea, said: “As soon as I learned the Tour de France was passing through the area I wanted to help Writtle College be a part of this iconic event and I am thrilled that my design was chosen and will potentially be seen by thousands of people.”
