On Thursday June 11, Bath will host the grand final of the Pearl Izumi Tour Series, an unique, team-based closed circuit cycling series.
Bath & North East Somerset Council is working with the community and the organisers to support the tour, which features teams formed by English cricketer, Matt Prior, and Tour De France winner, Sir Bradley Wiggins.
The Bath circuit will include Royal Avenue, Marlborough Buildings, The Royal Crescent, Brock Street, the Circus, Gay Street and Queens Parade.
The fun kicks off at 10.30am in Royal Avenue with cycling activities for local school children. This will be followed by amateur events for keen local cyclists on the Pearl Izumi route. The day will culminate with the professional events in the evening, starting with the Women’s Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series final at 5.30pm, followed by the Men’s Pearl Izumi Tour Series Grand Final at 7.30pm.
