Tour of Britain Teams and Riders 2016

The Tour of Britain is well under way, with the riders almost half the way through with Stage 3 complete. The team here at PBK got the opportunity to attend the stage 3 start in Congleton to see the Tour of Britain teams and riders on the start line and it is needless to say that the atmosphere was buzzing (the glorious sunshine made an appearance to top it off)!

This year, the Tour of Britain is the biggest it has ever been, with 8 Olympic medallists in the line up. So if you’re a bit late on your research, then no worries, we have the entire list of the pro peloton here on our blog, as well as a handful of images that we managed to take whilst enjoying our Tour of Britain VIP experience!

I'm a runner at heart but since shin splints became a big part of my life, I turned to cycling as a form of cross training. I love riding track and am a regular on the Manchester velodrome; on the road I ride a Trek Lexa and I call it Toby.
