The tourism industry of Pershore, a market town in Worcestershire, England, will receive a major boost when the top cyclists across the globe, hit the streets next Sunday of this small municipality in the ‘Tour of Britain’ event, as expressed by an-ex Mayor.
To note, the final stage of this international race will start in Worcester and witness cyclists going through the market town, as part of the 180kms course which reaches its pinnacle in Cardiff.
While exchanging thoughts with the Observer, Coun Tony Rowley considers that the race will eventually enthuse the residents to take up cycling seriously besides boosting the tourism sector of Pershore.
Like 2014, thousands of spectators are anticipated to line the streets of the town during this event yet another time to have a glimpse of the world’s top cyclists including the names like Mark Cavendish and Geraint Thomas respectively.
With widespread coverage of TV channels of the race, images of Pershore will be telecasted in every corner of the globe from Europe to Africa to Central and South America.
On ITV 4, one can watch this race every minute live!
At around 11am, the race will start and the cyclists will pass through Drakes Broughton on the B4084 to arrive at Pershore and eventually heading to the High Street. From there, will go to Broad Street and up along Defford Road where they will reach Upton-upon-Severn and cross the Malvern Hills at British Camp.
Coun Rowley will be delivering a call to all the local residents to come and join and witness this glorious event in the international cycling calendar.
