The following roads are subject to a one way order where traffic will only be allowed in the same direction as the event:

- The Avenue.
Traffic on the following roads will be subject to police controls and will be delayed whilst the riders use that part of the circuit:
- Burton Road
- Burton Village local traffic
Parking in Castle Square is closed, but please use the nearby local car parks offering long stay parking which are just a short walk to the heart of the action.
A No Parking Order will be in place from 6 pm on Saturday May 7th to 3 pm on Sunday May 8th. Any vehicles parked in a dangerous position at 8 am on Sunday will be towed away and subject to a recovery charge to the owner.
It would be most helpful if householders on the race route will again co-operate by not parking on the road side. This can cause an accident amongst the cyclists.
Any vehicles judged to be parked in a dangerous condition may be removed under police instructions. The Race Organisers really appreciate your ongoing help in this important safety matter.
Motorists wishing to avoid delays should use alternative routes.
South - North traffic should use Lindum Hill and Wragby Road.
Traffic coming in to Lincoln on the A15 should join the A46 By Pass to the A158 junction and then in to Lincoln via Wragby Road.
Traffic leaving Lincoln towards the A15 should take Nettleham Road to the A46 By Pass.
Traffic leaving Lincoln to the west should use Doddington Road or Skellingthorpe Road to join the A57. All diversions will be fully signed.
Please assist by observing the Police and Race Marshals instructions.
The race organisation thanks you for your co-operation in implementing the above without which this exciting event could not take place.
