Women's Tour stage five

The Women’s Tour, the award-winning and trailblazing cycle race, will take a one-year hiatus in 2023.

Owing to a combination of increased running costs (approximately 20% higher in comparison to the 2022 race) and a reduced level of commercial support, it has proved impossible to deliver the proposed event.

Stage two was scheduled to take place between Northampton and Ampthill on Thursday 8 June.

We will continue to work West Northamptonshire Council and Central Bedfordshire Council to explore opportunities for hosting world-class cycling events in the near future.
