The Tour of Britain passes through the Pennines on Thursday
This week's Tour of Britain sees some of the world's best cyclists battling it out in six stages across the country.
Stars on display include world champion Tom Boonen, two-time world time-trial champion Michael Rogers and Tour de France podium-finisher Andreas Kloden.
Here's the full run-down on all the action from Glasgow Green to the Mall in London.
When: Tuesday, 29 August
Where: Glasgow to Castle Douglas
A rolling route which starts in Glasgow at the People's Palace and heads south
Without any major climbs, there is no obvious place for a break to go but, if there similar crosswinds to last year, the peloton will have to be wary of an attack at any time.
When: Wednesday, 30 August
Where: Blackpool to Liverpool
Starts next to Blackpool's Sandcastle, navigates east through the Trough of
Bowland to Clitheroe before tacking back towards Southport and finishing by
Liverpool Town Hall.
Could end in a sprint finish but one of the smaller teams might launch a bid for a stage win.
When: Thursday, 31 August
Where: Bradford to Sheffield
The key stage of the whole race takes the peloton north from Bradford's Centenary Square to Harrogate before heading south for the Pennine Peaks, where the overall race lead could be decided.
A descent into Sheffield, which hosts a stage finish for the third year running, could offer a thrilling chase to the line.
When: Friday, 1 September
Where: Wolverhampton to Birmingham
With much gentler terrain than the day before, this chase through the Midlands could see a breakaway by a group of riders not in contention for the race leadership.
Heads north-west from Wolverhampton's Market Square to Newport before taking in Stafford, Cannock Chase and finishing at Millennium Point, Birmingham.
When: Saturday, 2 September
Where: Rochester to Canterbury
A picturesque stage which will act as a dry run for next year's Tour de France stage over much of the same ground.
Narrow lanes at the start offer the chance of an early break.
When: Sunday, 3 September
Where: Greenwich Park to the Mall
A short stage which takes in many of the landmarks of central London including
the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace.
With the race likely to have already been decided, the British riders are likely to try to grab some attention in front of what is expected to be a huge home crowd.
