After its departure from Aberdeen last week, the Tour of Britain is now in full swing and is building to its climax on Sunday 11th September in the Isle of Wight.
From Tewkesbury to Gloucester, the sixth stage is set for Friday 9th September. It has a start and finish line separated by just 10-miles, meaning spectators have a chance of being able to catch both. After Stage 6, the race moves to Dorset on Saturday 10th September and then climaxes at the Isle of Wight of Sunday 11th September.
Sportive Breaks, who are a part of Destination Sport Experiences, are offering packages for fans who want to get more involved with the action.
One of the most exciting offerings is the chance to cross the final finish line of the tour with ex-professional cyclist Dan Martin. The finish lines to each stage are expecting large crowds, meaning riders will have a finishing experience like no other.
Riding the final 25-50km of the race will be a memorable task, with Stage 6 finishing by the historic Gloucester Docks, the most inland port in the country, Saturday’s Stage 7 ending at Fern Down in Dorset, and the Stage 8 finale concluding at the Needles in the Isle of Wight on Sunday.
If you want to watch the Tour of Britain this year, Sportive Breaks are also giving those interested the chance to ride in an Official Race Car through the course to be up close and personal to the action throughout the race day. And there's a relaxing hospitality package experience at the start or finish line to see the race commence or close.
Whatever your choice, with eighteen world leading teams racing, you’ll be seeing the race from the perspective of professional and competitive cycling.
