Excerpted from The Gazette website:
“RIO Olympics stars Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish will be among more than 200 Lycra-clad cyclists zooming through Chipping Sodbury next week in the UK’s premier road race.
The elite field will be using its pedal power to speed down the High Street on Thursday, September 8.
The eight-day multi-stage race sees participants cycle the length of the UK.
It starts in George Square in Glasgow this Sunday and finishes in the heart of London on Sunday, September 11.”
The route will pass from Wotton and through Wickwar High Street from around 2pm-4pm. Note that Station Road will be closed for a period of time whilst the race progresses through the village and on to Chipping Sodbury. The School has arranged for an extension to the day to allow parents time to reach the school if they are unable to at 3:30 due to the closures. Please contact Alexander Hosea Primary School for further information.
