Dursley is getting ready to welcome the Tour of Britain

Dursley is getting ready to welcome the Tour of Britain

Gloucestershire will host the 6th stage of the UK's most prestigious and longest-running international cycle race on Friday 9th September.

The race is estimated to go through Dursley at approx. 2:14pm, travelling along Kingshill Road, Castle Street, Bull Pitch & Uley Road.

We want to give the riders & spectators a warm welcome on the day.

The route will be decorated with bunting & the wonderful Queen's Platinum Jubilee flags created by the community.

There will also be a town centre 'cycle art' feature created with the help of the Vibe Youth Centre.

We hope spectators will make the most of Dursley's high street, which is itself home to two specialist bike shops.

It's also a great opportunity to find out more about our wonderful town, which is the birthplace of the distinctive 'Dursley Pedersen' cycle.

Watch out for more cycling news as the race date nears.

Race information for the community & residents along the route can be found online using the link below.
