Prospective participants have until 5pm BST today to pre-register for the first ever Vélo Birmingham – a 100 mile fully closed road sportive taking place on Sunday 24 September 2017.
Entries will go on sale exclusively to those who have pre-registered at 8am on Thursday 29 September and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. With tens of thousands of pre-registrations and just 15,000 entries up for grabs, demand for places is expected to be huge.
Starting and finishing in the heart of Birmingham city centre on Sunday 24 September 2017, the 100 mile closed road sportive will take riders of all levels of ability on an unforgettable route through Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire, Sandwell and Dudley, before returning to Birmingham city centre.
If you want to #RideTogether with your friends, you need to pre-agree a team name as you will be asked to input this as part of the entry process. This will give you the best chance of starting in the same wave as each other.
Vélo Birmingham is part of the Birmingham Cycle Revolution, an exciting Birmingham City Council initiative to inspire more people to cycle in and around the City, making Birmingham healthier, greener, safer and far less congested.
