After careful consideration, the organisers of the 2020 Tour of Britain, which was due to start in Cornwall in September, have taken the decision to postpone until next year.

British Cycling along with the various stage hosts, including Cornwall Council, have decided it would be impossible to manage a safe race this year in light of the current Covid-19 restrictions. The decision has been made to switch the locations chosen for 2020 to the following year, meaning Cornwall is still scheduled to host the opening leg of the race. It will be the first time the prestigious event has been seen in Cornwall.


The decision to postpone was taken after the event organisers acknowledged increasing challenges in their ability to manage a safe race in September 2020.


Cornwall will host the Tour of Britain for the first time ever in September 2020, with the Grand Depart of next year’s race seeing riders travel 170 kilometres through the Cornish countryside, starting in Penzance and ending in Bodmin.

Over 100 of the world’s best cyclists will grace the streets and roads of Cornwall, on an undulating course over hills and through valleys, starting in Penzance on Sunday 6 September.

The stage’s route will also visit St Just, St Ives, Hayle, Camborne, Pool, Redruth, Falmouth, Penryn, Truro, Newquay, St Austell and the Eden Project.
