A cycling spectacular for borough


WARRINGTON is gearing up for a cycling spectacular next month which is not to be missed.
The Tour of Britain, the UK’s biggest professional bicycle race, will pass through Culcheth on Monday September 10 at around 1pm.
With “Wiggins mania” sweeping the country following the Olympics and the Tour de France, this is a chance to see more than 100 of the world’s top cyclists on the doorstep, “going for gold”.
In this year’s event, cyclists will ride 850 miles over eight days travelling throughout England, Wales and Scotland.
They will contest an intermediate Yodel Sprint in Culcheth, outside Culcheth Primary School, where they will do battle for points towards the Yodel Sprints Jersey and vital bonus seconds for the overall classification.
Cllr Linda Dirir, the borough council’s executive member for highways, transportation and climate change, said: “It is fantastic news that the Tour of Britain will be coming through Culcheth especially as interest in cycling has certainly soared in the past few weeks.
“I am hopeful that all these amazing events combined will encourage more people to cycle either for fun or take it up as a sport. You never know it could just spark some home grown Olympic champions of the future.”
Andy Hawes, route and technical manager of The Tour of Britain said: “Stage Two is a fantastic chance for residents of Culcheth and surrounding areas to see some of the world’s top cyclists, who they will normally only see on television, in action.”
Stage Two of the Tour is due to head through Culcheth for the Yodel Sprint between 1.15-1.45pm.
