Road closures announced for Bristol’s cycling celebration

Roads in the city centre will be closed in order to allow cyclists to travel around traffic free.
On Sunday 8 July, the streets will be closing to let the Bristol Grand Prix and the local HSBC UK Let’s Ride event take place in the centre.
This will allow for professional racers to take to the streets in the morning to battle it out as part of the largest race of its kind in the country whilst allowing families and less confident cyclists to ride the course in the afternoon.
Any drivers are asked to make note of these closures and plan ahead in order to avoid delays.
The following streets will be affected by the event from 4am to 7pm on Sunday 8 July:
College Green
