100 Miles

Vélo Birmingham & Midlands (formerly Vélo Birmingham) is BACK… bigger and better than before, with a new date, new name and brand new 100 mile closed road route!

Once again starting in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, our new and improved route will take riders through the heart of the 2021 Capital of Culture – Coventry – where riders will cycle on the cobbled roads surrounding the historic Coventry Cathedral.

In between these two epic city centre adventures, riders will enjoy riding through Solihull, Warwickshire, Dudley and Sandwell where they will encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs… not to mention the tens of thousands of local residents lining the streets to cheer the riders on!


We’re delighted to announce the launch of a new 42 mile route! Book your place here and let us know using the form below.

Do something amazing in 2019 and take on this epic two-wheeled challenge from Birmingham to Coventry on traffic-free roads. Riders of all abilities aged 16 years and over are welcome.

The 42 mile route is the perfect introduction to riding in a big closed road cycling event and is a great way to gain confidence in your cycling ability in a welcoming and friendly environment. We hope that for many it will act as a stepping stone to one day taking on the 100 mile challenge!

Starting in the heart of Birmingham city centre, the 42 mile route will weave its way through the beautiful West Midlands countryside on route to the heart of Coventry – the European City of Sport 2019 – where you will cross the finish line on University Square in the shadow of the historic Coventry Cathedral.

The safe, high quality event experience is exactly the same as the 100-mile route; the only difference is you don’t have to ride as far! Once you’ve crossed the finish line, you’ll be able to enjoy an afternoon of celebrations in Coventry and re-fuel at the famous Coventry Food Festival.
