On each stage of the Tour of Britain, road closures are put in place for a short amount of time ahead of when the race passes through – minimising any dangers to professional athletes and communities along the route.

You can find a video of how this works under the ‘How the closures work’ tab below.

Each stage will have a distinct route: to find out exactly where our routes go this year, please click here.

If you live, work or commute along the route, there will be road closures altering your travel for a small window of time while the race passes. This is known as a rolling road closure.
