Tour of Britain lands in Nottingham in September 2015
Join the crowds lining the streets, as the excitement of Britain’s answer to the Tour de France, sprints into Nottinghamshire.
The Aviva Tour of Britain consistently draws cycling’s top names to Britain’s roads – with everyone from Manx missile, Mark Cavendish - to side burned-supremo, Sir Bradley Wiggins, having pumped the pedals in the race’s recent past.
This year, Stage Six of Britain’s premier bike race will scorch along Nottinghamshire’s streets, and with grand tour stalwarts like Team Sky, Etixx-QuickStep, Tinkoff-Saxo and BMC all confirmed – as well as Team Wiggins and local legends Team Raleigh – the competition’s sure to be fierce.
Stage Six will give you the chance to see the stars of professional cycling up close and personal, as they exit the hills of the Peak District, and hone in on the finishing line at Forest Recreation Ground - where their arrival will crown an action-packed day of festivities. Get down early to enjoy a feast of free family fun, before the tension builds, and the riders arrive for the main event, which will be screened live on ITV 4.
The Tour of Britain is the highlight of another action-packed year of cycling in Nottingham, with Cycle Live, The Milk Race and the Outlaw Triathlon all already having gotten the city into a spin.
You’ll also find plenty of opportunities for you to gear up and get active on two wheels this summer. A £6.1 million investment has opened up Nottingham to safe cycling like never before, while our fantastic routes and trails are 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’ve 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.
From cosy log cabins in the heart of Sherwood Forest to luxurious hotels with spa facilities, Nottinghamshire has a great selection of accommodation. Take advantage of these special offers to make your stay even more enjoyable.
