For the first time this year you can ride some of the route of the Aviva Women’s Tour in our first ever sportive, which takes place in Northamptonshire a month after the race on Sunday 17 July.

Our sportive will be starting and finishing from Delapre Abbey in Northampton, the town which will host the Start of the final stage of this month's Aviva Women's Tour, providing the opportunity for circular routes allowing riders to sample the Stage Five route, with all the benefits of a shared Start/Finish location.

For those wanting to sample as much of the Stage Five route as possible, including both of the final days Strava Queen of the Mountains climbs at Newnham Hill and Naseby there is the 80-mile Pro Route to give a taste of the challenges of the final day, with just over 1,500-metres of ascent.

If you're new to cycling or are looking for a lesser challenge, the 40-mile Intermediate Route has just 800-metres of ascent, tackling just the opening Strava Queen of the Mountains climb at Newnham Hill outside Daventry.

You can register for either route by clicking on the British Cycling entry system here with entry costing just £30.  As well as rider numbers and timing chips and a fully signed route, entry also includes free mechanical support from our professional mechanics, access to the on route feed stations, which will be stocked by race partners HIGH5 and Soreen and your post-ride medal and snack in the grounds of Delapre Abbey.
