Tour of Britain

Dear All
As many of you will be aware, hot on the heels of the Olympic Road Cycling comes another major cycling event – Tour of Britain. Starting on Sunday 9 September, the Tour reaches Surrey on the eighth and final stage of the race on Sunday 16 September. Hopefully this will be of interest to residents, particularly as it is the first time that a stage has ever been held in Surrey. I am therefore hoping that you would be willing to share this information with your contacts please.
The Tour will pass through Mole Valley twice – firstly on its route from Reigate towards Shere and Guidlford, and again as it travels from the direction of Send through Leith Hill and Ockley on its way to Cranleigh. There will be two sprint sections in our District – Dorking High Street (at approx. 12.30) and Ockley (at approx 14.10).
The Tour is dfferent to the Olympic Road Cycling Road Races because it involves rolling, rather than full, road closures (with the exception of West Street, Dorking which will be closed from approximately 10.30am to 1pm to allow competitors and the race convoy to travel against the normal one-way direction). The Tour in Surrey is being managed by Surrey County Council and information regarding the race can be found on the Go Surrey website at or you can call the County Council team on 0300 200 1003 or email them at

Further information can also be found at the Tour of Britain website:

I have received a number of A4 posters and some A5 flyers from the County Council which I would be happy to send through to you for noticeboards, meeting rooms etc… If you wish to receive any, please contact me as soon as possible.
Kind regards
