The first route sections of the 2020 Women’s Tour finale in Suffolk on Saturday 13 June 2020 have been revealed.

Britain’s leading professional women’s cycle race will end in the county for the first time since 2014 with a stage between Haverhill and Felixstowe.

The full, 160-kilometre route in the county will be revealed in sections each Monday between now and Monday 23 March, at which point the segments will join together as one.

As well as attracting the world’s biggest teams and best riders, the Women’s Tour is completely FREE to watch. Visit our community hub to discover ways in which you can get involved in the 2020 event.

Sudbury section

Women's Tour Suffolk

For the first time along our stage six route we have sections that join, with the route through Sudbury linking to our Clare portion that was revealed in late February. Located on the River Stour near the Essex-Suffolk border, Sudbury sits in the Babergh district of the county.

With a history that dates back to the age of the Saxons, and known for being the birth place of acclaimed portrait artist Thomas Gainsborough, the market town is now home to around 13,000 residents.

Wickham Market section

Suffolk Women's Tour route

The latest route section to be revealed centres around Wickham Market, which last featured in the Women’s Tour during our 2018 stage from Framlingham to Southwold.

A thriving village close to the Suffolk Heritage Coast, Wickham Market boasts the stunning All Saints Church (complete with an unmistakable lead spire) and is home to a popular, weekly, open-air mini market.

Upon leaving the town, riders will head south in the direction of Woodbridge.

Clare section

Women's Tour Suffolk route

The first action of stage six will likely take place as the world’s best riders approach Clare, a market town that sits on the north bank of the river Stour.

Located just a short distance east of the stage start in Haverhill (and kilometre zero, where racing during the stage officially begins), Clare is an old wool town and features over 130 listed buildings.

Riders will also pass by Cavendish, better known in the sport of cycling for being the surname of the greatest sprinter of all time, Mark.

Stowmarket section

The first section of the route to be revealed comes mid-stage, as the world’s leading riders will return to Stowmarket – the finish location for the 2019 Grand Départ, won by Belgian rider Jolien D’hoore.

Travelling from west to east, riders will pass through Wattisham and Charles Tye en route to Stowmarket.

The 2020 Women’s Tour finale is presented by Suffolk County Council and East Suffolk Council. It is also supported by local sponsors Palmer Group and Vertas Group, and West Suffolk Council and Babergh & Mid Suffolk Council.
