AS with any cycling road race in Glasgow, the 2019 OVO Energy Tour of Britain will likely be accompanied by widespread disruption on the city’s roads. 

While the final route for this year’s event has not yet been finalised, the event was held in a similar fashion in 2016, with drivers and public transport hit as a result.
