Stage 6's 189km route of Aviva's Tour of Britain will start in Stoke-on-Trent city centre and finish at the Nottingham Recreation Ground. The cyclists will have the chance to race through the scenic Peak District National Park; the area is set to be a tough but exciting stage for the cyclists due to its notorious climbs.
Want to see the cyclists at speed? YodelDirect sprints will be happening at Buxton, Belper and Ilkeston - and we'd love to see you there!
Stage Seven - 12th September:
Stage 7 sees the cyclists undertake the longest route of the 2015 tour so far - 225km from Fakenham to Ipswich! The competitors will race through Norfolk, speeding through the historical city centre and through the beautiful surroundings of the Breckland countryside.
The riders will be competing for the YodelDirect Sprint Jersey at Fornham St Martin, Needham Market and Wattissham Airfield. With one day to go, these are the points where the whole event could be won or lost!
Stage Eight - 13th September:
The final stage of The Aviva Tour of Britain will be held in London for a slightly shorter - but unforgettable - 93 km sprint! The race will start and finish on the world-famous Regent Street and the cyclists will race to the backdrop of the stunning sights of Piccadily Circus, Trafalgar Square, The Strand and Whitehall.
