2017 and 2018 are set to be an action-packed years of cycling in Nottingham, with Cycle Live and the Outlaw Triathlon already getting the city into a spin. This year celebrates 35 years of the Great Notts Bike Ride - an integral part of the Cycle Live weekend. The four rides that make up the Great Notts Bike Ride have been given a makeover - taking their names from local legends Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Friar Tuck and Little John.

Nottinghamshire will host an entire stage of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain, the UK’s premier road cycling race, this September as the event visits Mansfield and Newark-on-Trent for the first time. It is the only county in the Midlands to host one of the eight stages.

Wednesday 6 September 2017 will see 120 of the world’s top cyclists racing a 175-kilometre stage from Mansfield to Newark-on-Trent. The route will take in Eastwood, Hucknall, Gedling and the grounds of Newstead Abbey and the centre of Southwell.

You’ll also find plenty of opportunities to gear up and get active on two wheels this summer. Explore our fantastic routes and trails ideal if you’re looking to find the best of Nottinghamshire’s gruelling climbs, winding mountain bike trails, and scenic locations for leisurely afternoon rides.

Cycle hire is available from the Nottingham Tourism Centre, and many attractions across the county. Full information can be found on our Cycle Hire in Notts page.

As well as superb facilities for cycling, we’re also proud of our illustrious cycling heritage – as the home of the world famous Raleigh brand - which had a major UK factory here, and which still has its headquarters in Nottinghamshire today.

Please note, there may be an admission charge at some of the attractions, or a charge to use the parking facilities.
