The event, which will see champions crowned in the road and time trial disciplines, is due to take place from Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 June 2015, beginning with the time trial at Cadwell Park Motor Racing Circuit.

The remainder of the time trial route will be held on fully closed roads - running along the top of the Lincolnshire Wolds as well as taking in the villages of Ruckland, Oslears Lane and Bluestone Heath Road.

The road race, which takes place on the Sunday, will officially start at The Yarnborough Leisure Centre. This will also serve as the race headquarters and team village. The finish line for the event will be in Lincoln’s Castle Square.

Taking in the villages of Stow, Willingham by Stow, Kexby, and Corringham, plus many more, the 28-mile loop is a variation of the route used for the 2014 Lincoln Grand Prix.

British Cycling’s cycle sport and membership director, Jonny Clay, said: "The prestigious Lincoln Grand Prix has been an integral feature of the British Cycling elite road racing calendar for decades so it is fitting that in its 60th year, the city will host the biggest single day bike race on the calendar.

"The routes for the 2015 championships will present riders with challenging courses which will see the first uphill finish at the road race championships for a number of years. With the famous cobbled climb of Michaelgate featuring heavily in the road race courses we can expect to see enthralling battles which will produce worthy champions."

Peter Kennaugh, Laura Trott, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Emma Pooley were crowned elite champions in the event last year.
