On Saturday Bristol will be hosting the penultimate day of racing in the 2016 Tour of Britain.

Many roads will be closed around the city, so the club are advising supporters to allow plenty of time to travel to the Memorial Stadium for tomorrow's fixture with Rochdale.

With so many opportunities to see the world's top riders in action on a 15-kilometre circuit, Bristol is sure to attract thousands of cycling fans from across the country.

Both stages will start from Bristol Downs, where 2014's Stage Four won by Michal Kwiatkowski finished, and then a 15.3-kilometre circuit taking in some of Bristol most iconic sites.

Each lap will include the 9%, 600-metre climb of Bridge Valley Road - once during the time trial in the morning and on each of the six-laps of the circuit race in the afternoon.

Final timings will be announced in the coming weeks, with the indvidual time trial due to begin around 10am for just over two-hours and the circuit race taking place between approximately 2.30pm and 5pm.
