Public transport and travel options
Spectators are strongly encouraged to travel to the event by public transport. Parking in Bristol City Centre is limited, the race will put road closures in place for the route and it’s generally a better thing for the environment if we can leave the cars at home. There are plenty of public transport options to make use of detailed below.
Train The race location is in the centre of Bristol and accessible by foot from Bristol Temple Meads train station, approximately 15 mins walk. Alternatively if you require a bus services 8 and 9 will serve the race area from the train station (route diverted due to road closures).
Bus If you are travelling by bus from Bristol please note that some bus diversions will be in place due to road closures and this may affect bus timetables.
Bicycle Travelling to the event by bicycle is very actively encouraged. We will be providing extra bike parking facilities at the event and these will be overseen by stewards. Bicycles are a very welcome means of travel but can cause difficulties in crowds – please ensure bicycles are secured in bike parking facilities and avoid walking around the race route with bicycles unnecessarily to enhance the safety and experience of the crowd.
Car If you are travelling by car please visit the BBC Travel Website for information on travel on the day. Please use the Park & Ride services to avoid bringing your car to the city-centre, there are 3 services located in Brislington, Long Ashton and on the Portway all in use on Saturday. See Travel West for more information.
Please note: the College Street car park will be closed due to the event and not accessible for parking.
