Stage Five will prove to be another tough day on the road on Thursday 8 September, covering 205 kilometres and 3,675m of climbing, taking the Tour of Britain across South Wales and into Gloucestershire and the finish in the stunning UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath.
Rolling out from Aberdare in Rhondda Cynon Taf the race will head east through Pontypool and Usk before running through the Forest of Dean and up along the Severn Estuary into Gloucester.
Coming out of the cathedral city the riders will head south into the Cotswolds before passing through Stroud and Dursley as they make their way to the finish in the picturesque city of Bath, the second time the modern race will have visited the city, but the first time it has hosted a stage finish.
