The Tour of Britain 2016 route has just been released and guess what, it’s coming through Cheshire East and – as far as I can tell (though I’d like to see a clearer road by road route) – it looks like it will be coming through Holmes Chapel as the riders go through Middlewich and then make their way to Knutsford, with the Stage Finishing line being at Tatton Park.
Take a look at the map below, I’m assuming the riders will come over the M6 roundabout at Junction 17, down Middlewich Road and then off on the A50 towards Knutsford. The George and Dragon may want to order in a few extra burgers now (subject to route confirmation!)
Part of the Stage 3 Route map as produced on the official website can be seen below (click the image to see the full map on the Tour of Britain site)
A website has been set up just for the Cheshire part (Stage 3), but the full route isn’t confirmed on that site at the time of writing. However, you can follow the progress at Cheshire Tour of Britain.
