Tour of Britain cycle race
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 5th 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.
- We encourage spectators to use existing off-highway cycle routes, especially at the busy start and finish locations of Penzance (from Marazion) and Bodmin (using the Camel trail). Why not make this a family cycling day out if you can?
- For cars, there will be a special event Park and Ride service for the finish at Bodmin next to the Rugby Club (just off the A30). And there are the usual summer season Park and Ride facilities for Newquay and Falmouth along with the permanent Truro Park and Ride service.
- In areas where public parking is allowed, car parking spaces will be available on a first come, first served basis. We therefore advise arriving at your chosen location early or using public transport where available.
- However, where current traffic and parking arrangements could become a risk to the safety of spectators and riders, on-street parking restrictions will be put in place. You may be asked to move your car if you use on-street parking near where the race passes. Alternative parking is being considered in some areas and information on this will be provided ahead of the event.
- For both the Start and Finish those with special needs will have easy access to the route. Reasonable attempts will be made for those with access needs, and areas allocated to give wheelchair users an unobstructed view of the race as it passes by.
- In Penzance and Bodmin there will be giant TV screens so everyone can follow the action. Live TV and radio coverage and aerial photography will draw a worldwide audience.
- As much as possible we will provide information on what time of day to expect the rolling road closure to be occurring near you.
- There is advice for spectators, residents and motorists HERE, and a list of helpful questions and answers.
