Wales will once again play host to two days of the Tour of Britain, British Cycling's premier road cycling event, with North, Mid and South Wales all set to be visited on September 7 and 8.

Denbigh will begin proceedings as Denbighshire hosts its first ever stage start on the morning of the September 7, before the 217 kilometre Stage Four heads through Flintshire and on to Powys, for the first ever stage finish in the county at the Royal Welsh Showground outside Builth Wells.

A day later, Stage Five will re-start from Aberdare in Rhondda Cynon Taf, a new venue for the Tour of Britain. That stage will cross South Wales, finishing in Bath.

The Tour of Britain will showcase Wales' unique and beautiful landscape to the world. One route will be through the heart of Wales, using roads previously unvisited by the Tour of Britain in the Cambrian Mountains, running along the Wye Valley and finishing on the Royal Welsh Showground.

Wales has hosted stages of the Tour of Britain annually since 2010, with last year's event beginning overall in the country, on Anglesey.

Powys has hosted a stage start of the Tour of Britain annually from 2010 to 2014, but this year will mark the first time a stage has finished in the county.

You can check out all routes here but further details will be announced in the early summer.
