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 three was scheduled to take place between Dalby Forest and Guisborough on Friday 9 June.

We will continue to work Forestry England and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council to explore opportunities for hosting world-class cycling events in the near future.
