On each stage of the Tour of Britain, road closures and parking restrictions are put in place to minimise any dangers to professional athletes and communities along the route.

For the majority of the route, a rolling road closure will be in place, meaning the roads will only be closed temporarily, usually between 15 – 40 minutes ahead of the race passing through. Please view the Tour of Britain video above showing how the road closures work.

However, in the start and finish locations (Penzance and Bodmin) there will be road closures and on-street parking restrictions. Further information is available here.
