The 2021 Tour of Britain is back with a bang in 2021. 

The eight stage Tour rolls out on Sunday 5 Sep in Penzance, Cornwall.

FulGaz contributors Rob Bennett, Ian Downie, and Russell McLean have filmed the final 30K to the finish lines of Stages 1, 2, 6, and 8 so you can virtually ride the best bits of the Tour of Britain from the comfort of your home. 

2021 is the first time the modern Tour of Britain has visited Cornwall and the stage features short, sharp hills with the final part going through mid Cornwall.

ToB 2021 Stage 1 Finish - St Austell to Bodmin

The ride leaves St Austell where you won’t have time to call in to the brewery famous for the nation’s favourite, Tribute Ale. However do take time to notice of the many wildflowers in the hedgerows en route to the hill finish at Bodmin Keep museum, just past the town’s steam railway station.

After 160km and 3,000m of climbing this is the final run in to Exeter of the 2021 Tour of Britain Stage 2. Initially hilly through green Devon lanes, once you have crested Longdown at 15 Km, it’s all downhill to the sprint finish in Exeter. You may recognise the first climb of this ride from Across Dartmoor.

ToB 2021 Stage 8 Finish Loch of Skene to Aberdeen

For the first time the tour finishes in Aberdeen and this ride follows the last 20 miles (32 km) from Castle Fraser past the Loch of Skene into Aberdeen. It’s an easy ride, with an elevation gain of only 182 m. There is one short, steep section about 2 km into the ride, the gradient topping out at just over 12%, then it is rolling Aberdeenshire countryside until you hit the outskirts of the city.
