There are many ways to celebrate the Tour of Britain coming through Nottinghamshire, if you want to get creative why not try your hand at land art. The idea of land art is that people turn fields, hills, market squares and even car parks into unusual art displays that celebrate the local community and tell the story of Nottinghamshire. It can be as simple as using hay bales to spell out ‘Welcome to Notts’ or arrange into a shape or image which would look impressive when viewed from the sky.

Other ideas of land art include:

.Mowing a giant shape/image into a hill or field
.Painting old, unwanted bikes yellow and putting them on display -which worked well as part of the Tour de Yorkshire race
.Creating giant posters or banners on buildings along the route
.Colourful flower displays in the shape of a bicycle in gardens
