The Tour of Britain returns to Rushcliffe this September!

April 6th, 2022

Good morning,

We’re delighted to announce The Tour of Britain cycle race will return to the Borough in September and on a near identical route to the event that visited us in 2018!

The eagerly anticipated Nottinghamshire stage of this year’s race for Thursday September 8 was outlined earlier this morning.

It will start on Central Avenue in West Bridgford and will visit Ruddington, Bunny, East Leake, Costock, Keyworth, Plumtree, Cotgrave, Cropwell Bishop, Cropwell Butler, Radcliffe and Shelford and finish in Mansfield.

The full route is here.

It is the third time the showpiece event will take place in the county and is in conjunction with our partners at the Tour, Nottinghamshire County Council and Mansfield District Council and other local authorities and follows the hugely successful staging of the race in 2017 and 2018.

The 190km route, approximately 118 miles, will attract a global television audience of millions and will again be aired live on ITV4.

The Nottinghamshire stage attracted 250,000 spectators in 2018 to make it the largest sporting event in the county’s history, leading to our area enjoying an economic boost of £3.9 million being spent by participants and spectators on accommodation, food and drink and shopping.

In due course our events team will invite all interested parties, including Town and Parish Councils and other groups and individuals to a find out more session on how they can get involved in the Tour celebrations in their communities, building on their wonderful efforts in 2018.
