Tour of Britain in London - Get involved
This year’s Tour of Britain is coming to London on Sunday 3rd of September. Organisers British Cycling are looking for volunteers to marshall the start, finish and throughout the course. This years world champion Tom Boonen of Belgium is going to be riding as well as London’s own Olympic Champion Brad Wiggins.
Stage 6 will be starting at Greenwich Park and then going through the City, Regents Park, Hampstead, Swiss Cottage, Hyde Park and finishing on a circuit of St James Park. Parts of the route in Camden and Highgate will be covering the proposed 2012 Olympic road race circuit. See the dowloads section above for a route overview.
Britsh Cycling are keen to get local people involved in the race. This course is certainly the most interesting and challenging route ever used for a cycle race in London. Interested people should register to volunteer at the event website.
Volunteers will have to attend a one hour fifteen minute briefing session. These will be held in Central London on the 13th, 15th and 26th August. At their session they will receive the training about what they will need to do for the day, and choose the sector of the route where they would like to volunteer. On the day marshals will receive all the safety equipment they need, a limited edition t-shirt and goodie bag to help them remember the day.
