Despite its popularity in 2017, to the disappointment of many cyclists, there will be no Vélo Birmingham 2018.
The bike ride that starts and finishes in Birmingham city centre, is a 100 mile route which combines wonderful views of what the Midlands has to offer and regardless of ability, the events which attracted up to 15,000 cyclists in 2014, is open to all.
Even though many streets were lined with cheering spectators, not everybody was impressed with the closed roads.
