The Route

Get ready for an unforgettable 100 mile adventure on completely closed roads.

Starting and finishing in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, our new and improved 100 mile fully closed road route will take 17,000 riders on a truly unforgettable tour of the Midlands.

Riders will encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs… not to mention the tens of thousands of residents lining the streets to cheer the riders on!

A major highlight of the 2019 route comes around mile 40 when riders will pass right through the heart of Coventry – UK City of Culture 2021. Cycling on the cobbled streets of the historic Coventry Cathedral in front of thousands of supporters will be a truly unique experience and will make you feel as though you’re riding in the pro peloton!

With c.1,500m of climbing, the route is fairly undulating with a few climbs to navigate on the day, but with the right training and a can-do attitude, this is a challenge that anyone will be able to complete!
