The OVO Energy Tour Series will once again take to the streets of Aberdeen for an exciting closed-circuit cycle race on Thursday 17 May 2018.

The day will begin at 12 noon with races from Scottish Cycling and the Cycling Activity Village before the Elite riders take to the circuit from 5.30pm, with the event finishing by 10.00pm.

In order to ensure the safety of the event for both riders and spectators, as well as those travelling around Aberdeen, a number of road closures and restrictions will be put in place.

Aberdeen City Council Co-Leader Councillor Jenny Laing said: “The OVO Energy Tour Series is set to be an exciting, and busy day in the city centre. We appreciate everyone’s support in helping to bring such an exciting event to Aberdeen.

“We would advise everyone travelling to Aberdeen on Thursday 17 May to plan your journey in advance, take public transport or cycle (where possible), and delays around the city centre are possible so leave yourself plenty of travel time”.
