The AJ Bell Tour of Britain’s eagerly-anticipated return to Nottinghamshire comes on day five of the 2022 race.

This will be the third time the showpiece event will take place in the county, following hugely successful visits in 2017 and 2018. As was the case when the race last headed to Robin Hood Country, this stage will start in West Bridgford and finish in Mansfield, although the route between the two will be different.

The peloton will pass through East Leake, Radcliffe-on-Trent, Calverton, Southwell, Retford and Worksop, as well as taking in recently-opened £49 million Colliery Way (Gedling Access Road). Key county landmarks and attractions, such as the world-famous cricket ground Trent Bridge and the legendary Sherwood Forest, will also feature.

This will be the only stage of the 2022 Tour with less than 2,000 metres of climbing: prepare for a fast and thrilling sprint finish!
