Tour of Britain Cycle Race coming to Waverton

The UK's biggest professional cycle race will be passing through Waverton Parish on Wednesday 11th September

The OVO Energy Tour of Britain is coming through Waverton village on Wednesday September 11th at approximately 12.40 to 1.00 pm.

This is the UK’s biggest cycle race and is televised on ITV 4 from start to finish, and we want to give the cyclists a really big 'Wavertonian welcome' on stage 5  of their 1,250 km journey around Britain.

The bunting will be up, the schoolchildren will be cheering and waving flags, local cycling groups will be supporting the cyclists, and we would love to see as many of you as possible lining the route.

The route is from Saighton, along the A41 and Eggbridge Lane towards Stapleford.

If you live or work along Eggbridge Lane or Guy Lane you can decorate your  business, house, hedge, fence or lamppost in red, white and blue to add to the atmosphere.

There is also a land art competition, so if you have a field and would like to enter (and be seen on ITV), the closing date is 31st August.
