University of Warwick

The Warwick campus will provide opportunities to get involved and watch the race as it passes through the campus as part of the 140km route through Warwickshire on Thursday 16th June.

From 10am there will be food stalls, cycling demos, activities and demonstrations at the heart of the campus.

There will also be plenty of spectator areas to cheer on the cyclists as they race through.

The university will also host a schools engagement event where local schools will be invited to take part in a morning of activities themed around ‘our amazing bodies are and how we get them active’.

After the race leaves campus, the big screen will be screening Euro16 matches starting with the England vs Wales match from 2pm.

Due to the expected disruption to car parks and local traffic services, visitors and spectators are encouraged to watch the race from campus to arrive on foot only.

More information can be found on the University of Warwick website.
