The OVO Energy Womens Tour, billed as Britain’s most prestigious professional women’s cycle race, takes place in mid June.
Stage two is hosted in Northamptonshire on the 14th June. As in previous years, we will follow much of the route, but abridged and adapted (many thanks, Brian) to follow a figure of eight and loop back to our start.
We will set off from Overslade Close in East Hunsbury, near the Library, and ride South towards Wolverton and Deanshanger.
Turning West, we will ride through Silverstone and on to our first planned refreshment stop, Canons Ashby, at 38 miles.
We will then ride to Weedon Bec before turning West again to Daventry at 54 miles, where we will pass the OVO Womens Tour Finish point.
At 68 miles, we hit our second planned refreshment stop at Woodford Halse, and by this stage, we will certainly feel that we deserve it.
From Woodford Hasle, it’s a mere 17 miles back to our start at East Hunsbury.
We look forward to welcoming all riders that feel like a challenge, but please ensure that your bike is in good condition and that you bring plenty of water, snacks and a route map
