New date. New route. New name… Vélo Birmingham is back!

Vélo Birmingham & Midlands (formerly Vélo Birmingham) is returning on Sunday May 12th, bigger and better than before, with an epic new 100 mile closed road route that will take 17,000 riders on an unforgettable journey through the West Midlands, including two major city centres!

Once again starting in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, our new and improved route will take riders through the heart of the 2021 Capital of Culture – Coventry – where riders will cycle on the cobbled roads surrounding the historic Coventry Cathedral.

In between these two epic city centre adventures, riders will enjoy riding through Solihull, Warwickshire, Dudley and Sandwell where they will encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs… not to mention the tens of thousands of local residents lining the streets to cheer the riders on!

General entries have now sold out, but it’s not too late to take part! Join our waiting list and you’ll be the first to hear if any general entries go back on sale, or alternatively you can secure your place on the start line now via entering for one of our official charities or via the Business 100 Challenge.
