About Warwick

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: There are limited tarmac pathways. Off the pathways, areas of the park may not be suitable for those with limited mobility or wheelchair and mobility scooter users.

Accessible Golf Buggy Service: To help with access across the site, an Accessible Golf Buggy Service will be available. 

What to expect

The rules of the cycling road race are simple – all riders begin together on the start-line, and the first one to finish secures the gold.

The race involves completing laps of the route up to a final distance of 160km for men, and 112km for women. The is one of the most physically demanding events at the Games and requires competitors to dig deep.

Held on public roads, this is an event that takes the Games to the very heart of the community, and the route will be lined by thousands of spectators, roaring their heroes to victory.

In addition to the sport, there will be plenty to see and do at Warwick. You can try out of    our ‘have a go’ activities and perhaps meet an athlete or even Perry the Bull, Birmingham 2022’s official mascot.
