Children from the Royal Mile Primary School will wave welcome flags for the Tour of Britain participants when they pass by tomorrow, and we met them today when they were practising their flag-waving!

The cycling tournament, which features champions Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish, will race past the Royal Mile on Wednesday morning when all 100 pupils will come out to watch the event.

Oliwier, Clara, Fares, Louise, Mahnoor, Matthew and Amber all pupils from Royal Mile Primary School


The Tour of Britain is the UK’s premier cycle race and over 20 of the world’s top teams will set off from Holyrood Park and will make their way through the centre of Edinburgh.
