Countdown to Tour of Britain return

Posted onPosted on 11th Feb

It has been revealed that the Tour of Britain will return to Nottinghamshire on Thursday, 8th September — with Mansfield again hoping to be fully involved.

In 2018 the town hosted the finish of the Nottinghamshire stage and the previous year the start.

Organisers have yet to announce the route of Stage Five of the 2022 showpiece cycling event — the most prestigious UK cycling event — when Nottinghamshire will again be in the national spotlight.

The 2018 event led to Nottinghamshire enjoying an economic boost that saw £3.9m spent by participants and spectators on accommodation, food and drink and shopping.

Mansfield MP Coun Ben Bradley, leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “I’m thrilled the Tour of Britain will be returning to Nottinghamshire in 2022. It is an event that will give our county a huge boost after the challenges of the pandemic.

“We had a hugely successful time hosting stages of the tour in both 2017 and 2018, and I would expect the same for 2022.

“There are countless benefits to the Tour of Britain returning for our businesses, for our communities, for our health and for Nottinghamshire, including the chance to again be on a global stage, which we deserve.

“The Tour of Britain coming back to Nottinghamshire will also play an important part in the economic recovery of our county and show we are bouncing back stronger than ever.”
