Get the inside track by joining VIP club

A new, FREE online VIP  club has been launched for people who want to get the inside track on the Tour of Britain cycle race which  will be speeding  through Northumberland  in just two weeks time.

Members of the Tour of Britain VIP Club will be the first to find out the latest race news, entertainment and view interviews  while also being  in with a chance of  winning  some great  prizes.

Those joining the group will have the opportunity to enter into a prize draw  to win a 3 night break for 4 in one of Kielder Water & Forest Park’s beautiful lodges and VIP passes for the start and finish of the Northumberland stage of the Tour will also be up for grabs.

On Monday September 4, the Ovo Energy Tour of Britain, the UKs biggest and most prestigious cycle race will arrive in Northumberland

The county is hosting an entire stage of the race including an exciting start in the heart of Kielder and a dramatic finish on the coast at Blyth. It will pass through 28 communities covering 211 kms along its route through the county.

Northumberland County Council has worked closely with race organisers Sweetspot, start sponsors Northumbrian Water and finish sponsors Blyth Town Council to bring the race back to Northumberland. It was last here in 2015.

Northumberland County Councillor, Cath Homer, cabinet member with responsibility for leisure said: “There is a great amount of local interest in the Tour of Britain.  Our VIP group aims to bring residents together to share stories, highlight community events and activities and enable us to provide all the latest information about the race and the route.”
