With less than two weeks to go, VisitScotland is highlighting how the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships, which takes place in Glasgow and across the country next month, could help position Scotland as a top cycling holiday destination.
Mother and son, Julie (51) and Jude Anderson (11), got on their bikes with a basket full of visitor essentials for a ride around Stirling – where the Individual Time Trial events take place.
The pair took in the Old Town Jail before grabbing some refreshments from Nicole Maclure at the Stirling Highland Hotel.
Billed as the world’s biggest cycling event, the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships (3-13 August), is more than just an event as it hopes to inspire people to ride bikes whether it’s for leisure, sport or travel.
The national tourism organisation hopes it will showcase Scotland’s bike-friendly spaces and places, in turn boosting the country’s valuable tourism and events industry.
With something for everyone to enjoy, the 2023 UCI Cycling Worlds will feature 13 high-adrenaline, exciting UCI World Championships including Track and Para-cycling Track at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, BMX Racing at Glasgow BMX Centre, BMX Freestyle (Park and Flatland) and Trials at Glasgow Green, Indoor Cycling (artistic cycling and cycle-ball) at the Emirates Arena, Mountain Bike Cross-country, and Cross-country Marathon in Glentress Forest, Tweed Valley, Mountain Bike Downhill in Fort William and Road and Para-cycling Road across Scotland.
Tickets are on sale from as little as £8, with concessions from £5, plus there are many free events, including the Individual Time Trials in Stirling, to watch throughout the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships.
