CYCLING Tour of Britain 2016 - Devon stage today

Tour of Britain cycling sprint image SweetSpot Cycling’s Tour of Britain 2016 will grace South Wales and South West of England highways and byways over the next two days.

Two stages and two golden opportunities to see the likes of 2016 Olympic champion Sir Bradley Wiggins and the world’s top cyclists in action.

Yesterday stage five started in Aberdare in South Wales and finished in Bath after meandering through Gloucestershire’s glorious Forest of Dean for the first time.

City dwellers were also in for a treat as the country’s free-to-see top cycling tour visited Gloucester for the first time before heading to Stroud before a first ever stage finish in Bath.

Stage six today sees a warm welcome return to Devon and a seaside start in Sidmouth with the now legendary King of the Hills summit finish at Haytor on Dartmoor.

Stage seven is cycling heaven for the city of Bristol with a time trial and a circuit race tomorrow.

Knowing Bristol’s enthusiasm for sport the penultimate stage of the tour is set to turn into a cycling festival for the city’s pro-active two wheelers.

The tour, which started in Scotland last Sunday will have literally crossed country by the time Wiggo and Co speed across the finishing line in London eight days later.
