Tour of Britain: Timings for each Rushcliffe town or village and rolling road blocks

The 116-mile long fifth stage of the Tour of Britain event returns to the county on Thursday 8 September after a four-year absence.

The race starts at 10.45am on Central Avenue in West Bridgford and finishing between 3-3.50pm on Chesterfield Road South in Mansfield.

It will pass through several towns and villages, including East Leake, Radcliffe-on-Trent, Calverton, Southwell, Retford and Worksop – as well as take competitors along the recently-opened £49 million Colliery Way road (Gedling Access Road).

The full route will also take in key county landmarks and attractions such as world-famous cricket ground Trent Bridge, the legendary Sherwood Forest and popular tourist attraction Clumber Park.

Now Rushcliffe Borough Council has released the approximate times the race will arrive at each town and village in the borough, along with the rolling road block timings too.

The leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council Cllr Simon Robinson said: “I am absolutely delighted that the Tour will be coming back to Nottinghamshire.

“We saw in 2018 the incredible economic boost it gave plus all the residents right across the County out there to watch it and I think over hundreds of thousands of people came out. I think everyone will benefit from it and I look forward to seeing the final details as they come out later this year.”
