Tour Series - Edinburgh

Edinburgh City

The Tour Series is a programme of town and city centre cycle races that take place across the UK throughout May and June. Each race is televised as 'live' the following evening on ITV4 with a full hour of programming. 

Each round of The Tour Series takes place on a totally closed 1 - 1.5 km town or city circuit designed to test the ability of the professionals taking part and how to show off some of the best aspects of each venue from a tourism perspective. Tour Series was held in Kirkcaldy in 2012/2013 and Fife Council decided not to reinvest in event in 2014.  Opportunity for Edinburgh City Council to continue raising profile of cycling in the city and experiences to deliver city centre cycling events. Working with the organisers of the Tour Series, Edinburgh City Council and Scottish Cycling will run a full afternoon of support activity, engaging local schools and communities to take part in support races, inter school competitions and community and family rides. The Tours Series provides a unique platform to promote healthy living, green issues and to inspire a whole generation of young people to take up cycling.
