North Warwickshire Welcomes the Velo

Road closures this Sunday 12 May 2019

The Vélo is coming. Are you ready?

Vélo Birmingham & Midlands, the UK’s second biggest closed road cycling event, takes place on Sunday 12 May 2019 with its 100-mile route through the West Midlands. The event is set to raise millions of pounds for national and local charities and is an opportunity for people to take in the roads and countryside of Nuneaton, Bedworth and North Warwickshire.

Due to the scale of the event, it is necessary to implement road closures on the day to facilitate the safe passage of the participants and to ensure the safety of residents and businesses. The route has been split into sections and, to keep disruption to a minimum, road closures will be staggered throughout the day. An interactive map of the route can be found on the Vélo Birmingham & Midlands website:
