Starting their epic 115 mile cycle across the country from Hemel Hempstead, the OVO Energy Tour of Britain Stage 7 route is expected to take riders most of the day, pitting them against challenging terrain. The route traverses Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, before heading through Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh.

Nearing Cheltenham, the riders will head through Winchcombe, before climbing the SKODA King of the Mountains climb up Cleeve Hill on the final 10km approach. Freewheeling down the other side, the riders will speed along Southam Lane, turning left down Evesham Road past the racecourse, through Pittville Park, navigating a tight bend at Clarks corner and another at HSBC, before crossing the Promenade outside Cavendish House for a final race up to the finish line at Imperial Gardens.
