A spokesperson for the Banbury Star Cycling Club said: "Our president, Paul Dean, has been working with Brian Collins, who is a landscape officer at Cherwell DC on ideas to promote the club, our anniversary year and the forthcoming Women's Tour which finishes in Banbury. It also ties in with raising awareness of cycling at a time when studies are taking place to improve cycle routes and conditions in the town.

"The significance of the town hall location is that's where the club's first ride met in 1891. Our 130th ride will also start there on Sunday 8th August.

A second floral display has also been erected at the Banbury Cross roundabout and in the coming weeks that will also be sponsored by the club as part of the Women's Tour promotion."
