Gloucestershire will play a starring role in the Men’s Tour of Britain, the UK’s most prestigious cycle race, by hosting the sixth stage of the race on Friday 9 September. This marks the first time that our picturesque county will have provided the backdrop for a full day of the event. The Stage 6 route will start in Tewkesbury then head into the Cotswolds before approaching the finish by the historic Gloucester Docks via South Gloucestershire.
