Women's Tour 2017


12:19 Wed, 15 Feb 2017

Women's Tour route was announced this morning, and it's coming our way again - Stage 4 on Sat 10th June starts and ends in Chesterfield, and the route passes Matlock, Wirksworth, Carsington and Belper. Not sure yet exactly where the route goes, but hopefully we'll be able to arrange a club ride out to watch the race pass. (With a little planning we'll probably be able to catch them twice.)

Unfortunately we'll only see them early in the stage unless we head all the way up to Chesterfield, so it's unlikely to be quite as good as last year (when the race-winning move happened right in front of us on Bank Road in Matlock). Should still be a fun day out though.

I've stuck a ride up already which can of course be modified. I think we might be able to catch them 3 times looking at the shape of the route. Just East of Tansley - Higham - Clay Cross. It's the thought of riding in the sunshine with legs and arms out that sounds fantastic.

Chesterfield isn't that far if we're making a full day of it and want to see the finish.
