Road Race and Time Trial events will hit the open roads of Glasgow, using specific road circuit courses. They’ll be taking the tourist route through Glasgow, but forgive them if they don’t pause to admire the architecture. When you’re travelling at these speeds, all you can see is the finish line.

The road race is scheduled for the 3 August.
