An unforgettable 100-mile route on completely closed roads for 15,000 riders through the Midlands countryside.
Whether you're a seasoned sportive rider, a newbie cyclist on a mission to complete a century ride, or an enthusiastic charity fundraiser in search of a truly epic challenge, Vélo Birmingham will deliver an unforgettable cycling experience for each and every participant.
Starting in the heart of Birmingham city centre, the route will wind its way into the picturesque counties of Worcestershire and Herefordshire through rolling countryside, lush green woodlands and quaint towns and villages lined with cheering spectators.
With around 2,000 metres of climbing it is a relatively undulating route however you don’t need to worry about encountering any Alpine-like climbs! For those of you who want to channel your inner Chris Froome and really test the legs, we suggest you save some energy for the King & Queen of the Mountains challenge that you’ll encounter 85 miles into the route (there’s no shame in walking this bit!)
If you are worrying you won’t be able to complete the event in time – don’t. The lengthy road closures we have secured means that all riders will have plenty of time to complete the full 100 mile route and we’ll support you every step of the way.
