British Cycling confirms TdF Cyclosportive ride

British Cycling has confirmed that it will offer cyclists a unique opportunity to ride the same route used by the pros on stage one of the 2007 Tour de France across East London and Kent. The event will include entertainments and activities matching its status and profile, similar to major continental Cyclosportives such as the famous L’Étape du Tour.

The event will take place exactly one week before the Tour de France Grand Départ on Sunday, July 1 and will accommodate 5,000 riders from across the UK and Western Europe. Full details of the route and its partners will be announced on Thursday, February 15.
