“Hosting the Tour of Britain is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase everything North Lincolnshire has to offer. We hope people will be inspired by the race coming to our area and this will build on North Lincolnshire’s growing cycling culture.”

One hundred and twenty of the world’s top cyclists will take on a 172-kilometre stage, starting from the beautiful 300-acre estate of Normanby Hall Country Park and finishing in the heart of Scunthorpe near Central Park.
