Tour of Britain to Pass Through Chelford

Home » Newsroom » Tour of Britain - Chelford

Chelford is well known in cycling circles as a venue for races but on Tuesday, September 6th this year, the Tour of Britain will pass through on Stage 3, Congleton to Tatton Park.

The stage, which also takes in the hills around the Cat & Fiddle and the A54 Congleton to Buxton Road is 182.7 Km in length, with a total ascent of 2138 m.

You may have seen some orange bikes around the area as this is the colour Cheshire East Council has adopted for stage 3 of the tour — and bikes are being used as promotional sculptures at strategic locations along the route.

The idea of having brightly painted bicycles on display has caught on in recent years, with regions in Scotland and England painting bicycles in shades of blue, red and yellow.

So, what do you think? Has anyone got an old bike that they could paint orange and put it out somewhere along Knutsford road?

Cheshire East has teamed up with several town and parish councils for this initiative to make sure that the Cheshire leg of the 2016 Tour gets the publicity that it deserves.
