About

The third edition of Vélo Birmingham & Midlands is returning next year with a brand new summertime date – Sunday June 21!

Once again starting in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, our 100 mile route will take 18,000 riders of all abilities through the heart of Coventry where riders will cycle on the cobbled roads surrounding the historic Coventry Cathedral. We’re proud to say that Vélo Birmingham & Midlands is the only mass participation cycling event in the world that boasts two city centres as part of its route!

In between these two city centre adventures, riders can expect to encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs… not to mention the tens of thousands of local residents lining the streets cheering the riders on!

Following an exclusive pre-sale to previous Vélo Birmingham & Midlands riders from Tuesday October 1, all remaining 100 mile entries will go on sale to everyone who pre-registers on Thursday October 3– to be in with a chance of taking part you must pre-register.

Please note; entries for our shorter route will open in 2020.
