Introducing the new Vélo Birmingham route…
Starting on Broad Street in the heart of Birmingham, the 100 mile fully closed road route will take you on a breathtaking journey from city to country, passing through Worcestershire and Staffordshire via Sandwell and Dudley.
As well as the stunning countryside of Worcestershire, the route will now also showcase some of Staffordshire’s beautiful towns and villages including Kinver, Wombourne and Trysull. You’ll also ride past the medieval Stourton Castle and the wildlife reserve at Highgate Common, just two of numerous new route highlights.
Upon crossing the finish line on Broad Street, you will be directed to the impressive Barclaycard Arena (NIA) where you will be able to celebrate your fantastic achievement with fellow riders, friends and family!
The full, interactive map will be released soon, along with key info such as where the new KOM will be! The new route remains a challenging, closed road 100-miler, with c.1750m of climbing.
This route has been years in the planning in partnership with six local authorities, emergency services and transport operators and we are extremely proud to be unveiling what we believe is a spectacular 100 mile route that showcases the very best of Birmingham and the West Midlands.
We’re confident you’re going to love it!
