Tour of Britain Spectator Information

COVID-19 Safety

As Scotland has now moved beyond Level Zero in terms of COVID-19 restrictions, there are no limits on the number of people who can gather outside.

However, we would still advise caution and where larger groups gather, it may be advisable to wear a face covering even when outdoors and to keep a good distance from each other if possible.

Hand hygiene is also still very important and, of course, if you do have any COVID symptoms, you should stay at home.


For the King of the Mountain stage at Wanside Rig, please note that car parking is not available.  It's anticipated any spectators at this remote section would be cycling enthusiasts travelling by bike.

Road Closures

There will be a series of rolling road closures as the race passes through and it's anticipated that none will last longer than 30 minutes so that minimal disruption is caused to residents and businesses.  

The riders are expected to take around 90 minutes to pass through East Lothian with an estimate time of crossing from the Scottish Borders into East Lothian between 14.04 and 14.39 and crossing into Midlothian between 14.41 and 15.20.  Warning notices advising of the temporary closures will be going up along the route this month.
