The world-famous Tour of Britain cycle race returns to the Borough and County on Thursday 8th September, starting in West Bridgford and racing through many of our wonderful towns and villages!
Rushcliffe Borough Council is keen to support residents and businesses in organising local celebrations. All the information you need is at www.rushcliffe.gov.uk/tob, where you’ll also find a detailed interactive map of the route – giving residents, schools, landowners, and businesses the perfect opportunity to start planning for the big day.
Communities are urged to embrace the international event by transforming their towns and villages with bunting, flags, yellow bikes, and creative displays to celebrate the sporting spectacular as it passes through our county.
Businesses such as Philo’s in Ruddington are among those already planning how to embrace the spirit of the race as it passes their premises.
Landowners can also get into the spirit of the Tour by taking part in a national land art competition, to turn fields, hills, gardens, or any open spaces into unusual art displays.
The tradition of creating huge pieces of art visible from above for television cameras during bike races has long been celebrated and race organisers have again launched a competition to find the most eye-catching.
