The UK's biggest cycling race is taking place in Cumbria for a second consecutive day.

Top riders from around the world are competing in the Tour of Britain, including Team Sky's Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas - who won the Tour de France earlier this year.

Today is Stage Six of the race - a 168.3km route, starting from Barrow-in-Furness and finishing again at Whinlatter.

Riders will start from Barrow-in-Furness, passing north along the Coast Road to Ulverston.

They will climb for 3km up Whinlatter twice, from its harder eastern side, with the second of the ascents finishing at the visitor centre.
