Vélo Birmingham & Midlands

  • 2121st Jun 2020

With an epic 100 mile closed road route that will take 15,000 riders on an unforgettable journey through the West Midlands, including two major city centres, this is not one to be missed!

Starting in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, the new and improved route will take riders through the heart of the 2021 Capital of Culture – Coventry – where riders will cycle on the cobbled roads surrounding the historic Coventry Cathedral.

In between these two epic city centre adventures, riders will enjoy riding through Solihull, Warwickshire, Dudley and Sandwell where they will encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs... not to mention the tens of thousands of local residents lining the streets to cheer the riders on!

Starting and finishing in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, the 100 mile fully closed road route will take 15,000 riders on a truly unforgettable tour of the Midlands. Riders will encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs... not to mention the tens of thousands of residents lining the streets to cheer the riders on! A major highlight comes at around mile 40 when riders will pass right through the heart of Coventry – UK City of Culture 2021. Cycling on the cobbled streets of the historic Coventry Cathedral in front of thousands of supporters will be a truly unique experience and will make you feel as though you’re riding in the pro peloton!

With c.1,500m of climbing, the route is fairly undulating with a few climbs to navigate on the day, but with the right training and a can-do attitude, this is a challenge that anyone will be able to complete!
