Free Parking for Aberdeen Tour Series

Cheer on Britain's top cycle teams as they compete in Round 8 of the Tour Series on Thursday 25th May.

Starting and finishing on our doorstep on Union Street, you can take advantage of free parking from 5pm making us the perfect pit stop when attending the event.

You can also enjoy fantastic food in our cafes and restaurants and take part in a spot of retail-therapy with over 70 high-street favourites.

Visitors to the city centre looking to utilise the free parking offer should note that entry into the Harriet Street car park  is not available from 5.45pm to allow for final set up of the men’s elite race. Access to Loch Street entrance remains unaffected and cars will still be able to exit via Harriet Street.

FURTHER INFO

Aberdeen City Council in conjunction with Sweetspot will welcome the Tour Series cycling event for the first time this summer, as 50 elite athletes will tackle an hour-long race as they weave around a challenging 1.2 kilometre route in the heart of the city.

The men’s Tour Series race begins at 7.30pm racing to the finish line on Union Street, battling it out to be crowned Britain’s top team. The podium presentation for the men’s race takes place at approximately 9.00pm with the highlights shown on ITV4 on Friday 26th May.

The city will be one of two Scottish rounds on the calendar, with Motherwell hosting the other round two nights previously.

In addition to the elite race, Scottish Cycling will stage a number of amateur cycling events from 1.00 - 6.00pm.
