Cheltenham will host the finish of the penultimate stage of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain this September, as the world’s top professional cyclists race through the Cotswolds to arrive in the historic spa town on Saturday 9 September.
Stage Seven of Britain’s premier road cycling event will start in Hemel Hempstead, crossing Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire before passing through the likes of Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh.
The stage will see a SKODA King of the Mountains climb of Cleeve Hill inside the final 10-kilometres, before finishing in the centre of Cheltenham, the first time that the town will have hosted the OVO Energy Tour of Britain.
Full Stage ETAs and details of all the intermediate SKODA King of the Mountains and Eisberg Sprints will be published here in the build up to the race so please keep checking back here.

This is great news; perhaps we could organise a ride out east and then follow the route to Cheltenham after the race passes through. Or even better head to Cheltenham and drinks beers whilst watching the finish!
The following day stage 8 starts in Worcester and heads through Pershore and then out to the Malverns, perhaps if the timing works we could ride out to the climbs on the club ride?
