Glasgow Road Closures For Tour Of Britain

Tour of Britain 2015

Some of the world's most famous cyclists will be in Glasgow this weekend for the Tour of Britain and the Sky Ride.

Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish are among the cycling stars competing in the eight-day Tour, which starts at 11.30am in George Square this Sunday. Many of the riders will be there from 10am, with crowds of fans expected to gather to watch as the race kicks off.

From Glasgow the peloton will head south through Kilmarnock and Ayrshire as they make their way towards Dumfries & Galloway. Passing Loch Doon and Loch Ken as they skirt the outsides of the Galloway Forest Park, the finish will be in the town centre of Castle Douglas after 161km of racing.

The race then heads south of the border, with the final leg in London.

After the Tour has left George Square, Sir Chris Hoy will lead the family-friendly Sky Ride at 1.30pm, with thousands of people of all abilities taking part.

Drivers are being warned to steer clear of Glasgow city centre, with most roads closed to traffic from 4am until 8pm on Sunday. There'll also be road closures along the route. You can see them all below, and there's more information at www.glasgow.gov.uk and http://www.tourofbritain.co.uk
