Tour Black Country

The Tour of the Black Country is a tough 64-mile cyclosportive that features 15 km of cobbled roads, stony farm tracks and bridleways in the West Midlands and Worcestershire. It is inspired by the 'Queen of the Classics', Paris-Roubaix - the most famous one-day professional cycle race in the world. The Tour of the Black Country includes a total of thirteen unpaved gravel and cobbled sectors, varying in length from 600m to 1800m – all of which are passable on a standard road bike. Each sector is rated according to difficulty; one star being the most straightforward, five stars being the most difficult. The five-star sectors include the iconic ‘Waltonberg’ cobbled climb whose summit provides a spectacular 360-degree panorama over the Black Country, the Malvern Hills and Wales.

The route finishes, as does Paris-Roubaix, on a large outdoor velodrome, at Aldersley Stadium. Full details, maps, profiles, photos and videos at cycleclassics.co.uk
