The Aviva Tour of Britain cycle race passes through Penrith and the Eden Valley on Thursday 10th September. Stage 5 of the tour, starts from Prudhoe in Northumberland and follows Hadrian's Wall to Brampton before heading down the beautiful Eden Valley and then into the Lake District National Park, running alongside Ullswater.  After racing through the centre of Penrith, (only a short walk from The Red Townhouse), the stage will head to Melmerby at the foot of the eight-kilometre climb to Hartside Pass.


The spectacular sporting finish of the Eden stage, the 8km climb to Hartside will be the only mountain finish in the whole of the 2015 tour, and the highest finish ever in the history of the tour.  The organisers are already predicting that it will be the sporting highlight of this year's tour and is the highest, longest, toughest finish in the history of the tour!

There are ‘yellow cycles’ everywhere in the Eden Valley in anticipation of this event!
