Plumtree to welcome international cyclists in the Country's Premier Road Race
Plumtree has been chosen to be on the route of the 2018 top ranked Tour of Britain cycle race. The event itself lasts a week and will be travelling through the village on Saturday September 8 for its seventh stage. On the day the 120 international riders taking part will be setting off from Central Avenue at West Bridgford at a time yet to be announced. In all on that day before they finish at Mansfield they will have covered 129 miles.
The event is televised live throughout its route and that means the village will be seen on television both in England and many other countries.
Rushcliffe Borough Council say they feel Parish Councils in Rushcliffe will want to welcome the OVO Energy event passing through their village look forward to them marking the major sporting spectacle with a community event.
The Borough Council will be giving tips and ideas on the countless exciting ways to get involved in the event, before, during and after it flies through the Borough on the big day. It will include how you can decorate your house, business or neighbourhood in a cycle theme to welcome the riders or create your own land or water art that could be captured by the live coverage on ITV4.
Rushcliffe will in due course be providing further information about the route, timings and potential volunteering opportunities.
Central Avenue in West Bridgford is set to host the start of the cycling extravaganza, after which the 120 riders will wow residents and visitors with the penultimate leg of the nation’s premier cycle race as it winds its way through 129 miles of the county.
