Join 18,000 cyclists on this 100-mile ride. Starting in the beautiful city of Birmingham and making its way through the heart of Coventry, riders will cycle on the cobbled roads surrounding the historic Coventry Cathedral.
2020 brings us the third edition of Velo Birmingham and Midlands, along with a brand new summertime date – Sunday 21 June 2020!
Starting in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, our 100 mile route will take 18,000 riders on a truly unforgettable journey through the West Midlands on closed roads.
Riders can expect to encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs. Not to mention the tens of thousands of local residents lining the streets cheering the riders on!
