3-10 September - Check the weather forecast if you are cheering on the riders in the Tour of Britain cycle race.

The Tour of Britain is the country's largest annual free-to-spectate sporting event and dates back to just after the Second World War. However, the Tour of Britain as it is known today first took place in 2004; when it took place over five days in early September.

The weather is an important aspect of cycling, particularly that of competitive road cycling. Wet weather can slow you down and poses as a danger as there is much less grip on the roads and the rain may distort a cyclist's vision. This event in particular will require good weather due to the masses of competitors, so it will be much safer in good conditions.

To check the daily routes for each stage, visit the Tour of Britain official website.
