The Tour of Britain

The Tour of Britain celebrates its tenth anniversary, since the revival of the race by SweetSpot Group, in 2013. Scotland will host the Grand Depart of the 2013 Tour, with Peebles in the Scottish Borders welcoming the return of the race on Sunday 15th September for Stage One.

Eight days later The Tour of Britain will be back in central London for the traditional and iconic Whitehall finish to Stage Eight, the London Stage presented by TfL. Along the way The Tour will have its biggest ever individual time trial on Stage Three at Knowsley and a first ever summit finish on Haytor at the heart of Dartmoor on Stage Six.

A first ever stage through the heart of the Lake District, including the notorious uphill finish in Kendal, and a inaugural visit to the Snowdonia National Park ensure the 2013 Tour has an exciting and dynamic route, blending the old and the new, and providing a tough challenge for the world's top teams and riders who will compete on British roads in September.
