Proudly Supporting the AJ Bell Tour of Britain

We’re very proud to announce our partnership with the AJ Bell Tour of Britain - helping inspire the next generation to get cycling.

The AJ Bell Tour of Britain returns for 2022 continuing to attract some of the greatest riders in the world to for British fans. The Tour of Britain has existed in various forms since the earliest days of road racing. In its current form it has been running since 2004 and has helped to raise the profile of road racing with British crowds, inspiring huge numbers of families to get out on their bikes. Over 1.5million spectators crowded the roads for the 2021 edition. 

The 2022 race starts in Aberdeen city centre on Sunday 4 September and finishes eight days later on the Isle of Wight on Sunday 11 September. Along the way riders will tackle stages in the Scottish Borders, North East England, North Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Gloucestershire and Dorset.

James Symes, Bike Club co-founder and CEO, said: “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with the AJ Bell Tour of Britain, supporting the continued growth of cycling in the UK and helping to inspire the next generation.”

“At Bike Club we know how valuable cycling is as a lifeskill for everyone. The physical and mental health benefits that come with learning to ride are lifelong. That’s why we’re so proud to support events like the AJ Bell Tour of Britain that play such a vital role in getting families excited about cycling. We also know how quickly children grow and how difficult and costly it can be keeping them on the right size bike all the time. That’s where Bike Club comes in, giving parents affordable, flexible, and sustainable access to the best kids bikes, so they’ll never have to buy a kids bike again.”

Miles Rose, AJ Bell Tour of Britain commercial director, said: “Bike Club is a great initiative that in the current financial climate is ideally suited for families. Through the AJ Bell Tour of Britain if we can raise awareness of Bike Club, then it is another way that we can help to get more people onto bicycles in a sustainable manner.”

ITV4 will continue to broadcast live flag-to-flag coverage of every stage and nightly highlights show, allowing fans in the UK to watch wherever they are. The race will also be shown in over 150 countries worldwide, thanks to the event's partnerships with Eurosport and the Global Cycling Network.
