The third edition of Vélo Birmingham & Midlands is returning next year with a brand new summertime date – Sunday June 28!
The bike ride which starts and finishes in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, is a 100 mile route which combines wonderful views of what the Midlands has to offer and regardless of ability, the event which will attract up to 18,000 cyclists, is open to all.
The potholes were fixed but it wasn’t all smooth riding in 2019
Even though last years event was hugely successful with riders and spectators enjoying the occasion and thousands of pounds raised for charities – the road closures weren’t everyones liking.
There were many complaints from local residents and road users, especially those who felt the closures were unnecessary and objected to having to find alternate routes – ‘ Man (72) arrested after steward injured in Velo ‘road rage’ incident in Rubery’.
The 100 mile entries are opening soon and are expected to sell out extremely fast – to be in with a chance of taking part you must pre-register.
Entries for our shorter route will open in 2020.
