The Tour of Britain rolls into Gedling borough on Saturday with some of the country’s top class cyclists being able to take in some of the area’s most beautiful scenery.
This year’s cycle race is making its way through our area as part of stage seven of the event.
The riders are expected to enter the borough at picturesque Woodborough at mid-day and then follow the steep and scenic climb up Bank Hill and across to Dorket Head, before descending into Calverton at 12.12pm down St George’s Hill.
Calverton residents will cheer on the riders until they leave our borough, before returning later to Ravenshead at 14.54
This second stage in the borough passes by Ravenshead and down the A60 before entering Newstead Abbey Park.
The riders will pass Newstead Abbey, the home of Lord Byron, before heading west and through Newstead Village – who welcomed the Tour last year with great pride and enthusiasm.
