160 of the world's best cyclists are set to gather at Myton Fields for the road races, scheduled to be held on the penultimate day of the Commonwealth Games.
The women’s and men’s events will start and finish on Myton Road, near Myton Fields, situated in Warwick town centre not far from Warwick Train Station. The route will run to the edge of Royal Leamington Spa’s Victoria Park.
Spectators will be able to line the road race route, which is set to pass Warwick Castle, built by William the Conqueror in 1068.
Close to the start finish area is St Nicholas Park, originally a meadow, the park was laid out in the 1930s alongside the River Avon.
Accessibility: At this venue there is a mix of hard-standing pathways, trackway, and grass. The park outside of the ticketed spectator area may become muddy and wet in bad weather, which may not be suitable for wheelchair or mobility scooter users or those with limited mobility.
Accessible Viewing Platform: The venue will have an accessible viewing platform which can be accessed by those with an accessibility requirement. The platform can be accessed on a first come, first served basis, and will operate a plus one policy.
Accessible Golf Buggy Service: To reduce the distance to the venue, an Accessible Golf Buggy Service will run between Kings High School and the venue.
