Before and after the showcase event on Wednesday, September 10, Killeen and Malvern Hills District Council have organised cycle mania for the towns with activities including family bike rides, a vintage cycle display, Elgar vintage bike ride, bike skills demos and road rides.

Malvern and Upton will be will filled with a proper party atmosphere as some of the country’s top cyclists make their way through the streets. 

Liam said: “The Malvern area is a fantastic place for all forms of cycling and is hugely popular locally so welcoming the Tour of Britain is a great opportunity to highlight the sport, the area and the enjoyment of cycling.

“I have been working closely with a number of local groups and the range of events for the day of the tour and the week itself looks amazing.”
