The event is expected to see more than 10,000 cyclists enjoying traffic free Liverpool roads and a fun atmosphere along an 8.5 kilometre route finishing at Sefton Park.
2.00pm-5.00pm Tour of Britain takes place from the same place at The Strand then on to Parliament Street, Princes Avenue and Sefton Park Road.
Fun for all will be made this Sunday with the razz atmosphere of a carnival, horns a-hooting, whistling cars, outriders, sirens, bunting and massive inflatables……. re-living this summers Tour de France Yorkshire atmosphere here on our doorstep.
Don’t miss the 9am ride from the city centre, a ride to the Park that will thrill the kids and end in a bumper breakfast at one of the many Lark Lane eateries then, view the race in the afternoon as it races through the Park.
Have a brilliant day!
