A COMPETITION has been launched to give one lucky winner the chance to win four tickets to the exciting finale of the Tour of Britain.
Britain’s biggest cycling race comes to Oldham on Saturday, September 14 with a world class field of riders passing through Saddleworth and Shaw and Crompton, reaching an exciting conclusion with a 166km stage around Greater Manchester.
To mark the occasion – and to help launch a new Facebook event page-a competition is open for one person to win four tickets to be in the VIP area at the final of the race on Deansgate.
To enter go to the Facebook event and click to say that you are “going’ by Sunday, September 1.
The event is listed on the council’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/loveoldham.
Everyone who says they are “going” will be entered into a draw for the tickets and the winner will be informed via Facebook Messenger.
To ensure rider, resident and pedestrian safety during the race, parking restrictions will be in place along the route of the race between 10pm on Friday, September 13 until 2pm on Saturday, September 14.
A rolling road block will be in operation on the day and may cause delays between 12noon and 2pm.
Every address on the route will receive a letter from Oldham Council, setting out traffic and parking arrangements and a range of other information as well as a leaflet from Tour of Britain organisers a week or so before it takes place.
To stay up-to-date with all the latest information, including updates to traffic arrangements, and if you have any questions, please visit the council’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/loveoldham
