Road closures are implemented for a short amount of time during each stage of the AJ Bell Women’s Tour to maximise the safety of professional athletes, spectators and anybody working on the event.

Anybody who lives, works or commutes along each stage route should note that travel will be altered for a small window of time while the race passes through their city, town or village.

However, it is important to note that road closures will be minimal and disruption kept as low as possible. After all, how often does a world-class sporting event – one that’s free to watch, too – come to town?
