Tour of Britain – 6th September 2016

Stage 3 of the Tour of Britain cycling event saw the riders take on a tightly wound route situated entirely within Cheshire East, marking the first time that the Borough has hosted a stage of British Cycling’s premier event.

Crowds in their thousands turned out to line the streets of Congleton to watch the peloton head west to ride through Crewe and Nantwich before looping back on themselves towards Sandbach, Holmes Chapel,  Knutsford  and on toward the ten-kilometre climb of the Cat & Fiddle above Macclesfield before racing back through Knutsford to the finish in Tatton Park.
