PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES - FEATURING THE TOUR OF BRITAIN

THE RACE IS ON... On Saturday 9th September, Cheltenham Town Centre will come alive with a Festival of Cycling, featuring the penultimate stage of the Tour of Britain 2017.

Residents and visitors will be mere feet from some of the world’s most famous sportsmen, as they power past the Racecourse, through the town centre and across the Stage 7 finish line at Imperial Gardens, completing a gruelling 115-mile ride from Hemel Hempstead. The wider festival will also include a Kid’s zone at Pittville Park, a street fair outside the Town Hall, a demonstration area, money-can’t-buy competitions and much more, encouraging residents and visitors alike to take to two wheels.

Organisers are expecting more than 50,000 visitors to join local residents, to take advantage of everything the town has to offer. © apt retains the intellectual copyright for the contents of this report and the ideas proposed 2 PRESENTED BY
