Imagine riding 115 miles in one day, in a race against your peers. Now think about doing it for the seventh day in a row, against some of the world’s most elite athletes! Sounds hard right?
For 120 riders, this will be their life and the ride into Cheltenham will be their seventh in a row. Combine this with unpredictable weather patterns and unexpected events and it can be tough to accurately predict exactly when you will be able to see the cyclists and where. Our friends at Tour of Britain have however managed to do it for us, predicting the estimated arrival times if the cyclists travel 38kmph, 42 kmph (as expected) or 46kmph. Below are these estimates, and on the day you can get more accurate updates by following us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Even better, you can also watch the whole race from one of our screens around town, so you don’t miss a thing!
