Residential & Business

Cycle Live Nottingham – Sunday 25th June, 2017

Our aim is to try to minimise the potential disruption that the event will cause to residents once the roads are closed and the event gets underway.  There will be no circuit racing at Cycle Live this year and as such, access will be maintained to all homes throughout the event.

All riders are obliged to comply with normal highway regulations. The roads and locations on or around the route are expected to be more congested than normal and we ask those that are using the highways on the day take extra care and try to keep to a minimum any cars parked on the street. We recognise that this may cause some short-lived inconvenience, but we hope that local residents will also enjoy the spectacle and help support those raising funds for such good causes.

The event is organised by Perfect Motion, having taken over the ownership of the event from Nottinghamshire County Council in 2010.
