Parking availability Tour of Britain 2022 – Stage One finish at Glenshee

Parking is now available to book through Eventbrite for the Stage One finish of the 2022 Tour of Britain on Sunday 4th of September 2022 at Glenshee Ski Centre.

This includes parking for those interested in overnight facilities on Saturday 3rd of September, or for anyone considering taking a larger vehicle such as a 16 seat mini bus, large vans, large camper vans or coaches.

The A93 will be closed between Braemar and the Spittal of Glenshee to all unauthorised vehicle traffic from 11am on Sunday 4th September. Spectators wishing to drive and park at the event finish at Glenshee Ski Centre can still do so if they hold a valid parking pass for the carparks. These can be obtained here.

The A93 at Braemar and the Spittal of Glenshee will be manned throughout the day by event stewards, who will close the road at 11am prompt to allow the final preparations for the event finish area to be completed safely. Carpark ticket holders will still be able to gain access to the Ski Centre until 1pm, allowing the opportunity and plenty of time for anyone who wants to watch the start in Aberdeen to travel to the finish line at Glenshee ahead of the Teams.

For those coming from further afield and thinking of parking overnight carparking passes are also available, the ToB event team will arrive on Saturday 3rd of September and the café and toilets will remain open at the ski centre until 8pm to cater for them and for anyone else who might be parking overnight. The café will be open for the sale of hot food and refreshment including alcohol. The café will reopen from 7am on Sunday to cater for breakfast and will then be open throughout the day for sale of refreshments and food. Weather permitting the Cairnwell Chairlift will also be running.

The ToB event village will include event sponsors and merchandisers and also a large screen display, so those waiting at the finish will be able to follow the whole race during the course of the day.

Aberdeenshire Council have arranged parking for those wishing to cycle the last leg of the route from Braemar, this will be in the field normally used as the main Braemar Gathering carpark and situated on the approach to the village from Aberdeen. Cyclists will then be able to make use of the closed road section of the A93 until 1 hour before the race is due to pass (it takes an average of 40 – 50 minutes to cycle the 8 miles from Braemar to Glenshee depending on ability).

Road users should be aware that the A93 will close promptly at 11am on Sunday 4th September and will remain closed until the ToB Event team deem it safe to reopen, this is expected to be between 5pm and 6pm. All parking pass holders are welcome to arrive at Glenshee Ski Centre at any time during the morning but must be through the road closures at Braemar and the Spittal of Glenshee before 1pm after this time access will not be granted. Those parking vehicles will not be allowed to leave the carparks until the event organisers are happy that it is safe to do so.

The designated Clearways (no roadside parking zones) which run 2 miles north and south of the Ski centre will be enforced during the day, and for event safety no vehicles will be allowed to park on the road or roads verge between the Sean Spittal Bridge or Devils Elbow as the A93 approaches the Summit of the Cairnwell Pass from both north and South.

Drivers are made aware that at the end of this event, cyclist who have come to the Ski Centre will be given priority to commence their return journeys either north or south. The A93 will remain closed to normal traffic but once a suitable time has passed for cyclist to clear the area the event organisers will allow spectator vehicle traffic to leave the carparks when they feel it is safe to do so.

Drivers are asked to be patient for this controlled opening to take place which is being done in the interest of safety.

*UPDATE 29.7.22 - vehicles arriving from the south (Blairgowrie) will now be able to access parking right up until the race finish at 3pm. The road will remain closed but ticket holders from the south will be allowed through the closure and to park at Glenshee Ski Centre right up to the finish of the event. Travel time from the closure to carparks 15 minutes.*
