New term – new adventures!
The most exciting things to do in Bristol this September
Bristol is gearing up to host Stage 3 of the Tour of Britain cycle ride this September 4th. Fresh from peddling in the Pyrenees, Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas will put in an appearance at the race with fellow sprinter Chris Froome. SKODA King of the Mountain winners Mark McNally and Xandro Meurisse will also be tackling the ‘short, sharp, out-and-back leg’. The 128km circular route will feature a trek into the North Somerset Hills followed by a climb of the Cheddar George and will round off at the Clifton Downs. https://www.tourofbritain.co.uk/stages/stage-three/
