The OVO Energy Women’s Tour races through some of Britain’s most beautiful natural scenery, including National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a yearly basis.

SweetSpot Group, the organiser of the OVO Energy Women’s Tour, has made significant steps to improve the race’s sustainability and will continue to do so in 2019 and beyond.

However, we urge riders, members of team staff, officials, volunteers and spectators to think and act responsibly, and leave the beautiful locations we race through exactly as we found them!

Women's Tour sustainability

Riders

Please dispose of your rubbish (bottles, packaging etc.) in the Green Zone, located immediately before and after the feed zone each day. Race organisation will remove items discarded here.

Away from these areas, please act responsibly and hand your rubbish to a support car or keep in your jersey pockets. Remember, you are on television so please do not discard food or gel wrappers – this may result in a fine from commissaires, plus affect the reputation of the race.

Team and organisational staff

Turn off your engine if stopped for more than a minute and think about car sharing.

Behave responsibly by reducing your speed (reduced consumption and less pollution!).

Please use bins and recycling bins provided at starts and finishes to dispose of waste. If there aren’t any bins available, please keep your rubbish and dispose of it responsibly later.

Volunteers and spectators

Where possible, travel to watch the race using public transport, by walking or cycling.

If watching in remote areas, please think about car sharing with fellow racegoers.

Please use bins and recycling bins provided at starts and finishes to dispose of waste. In areas where suitable waste and recycling bins are not available, please keep your rubbish and dispose of it responsibly later.

Smokers are urged to discard of their butts in an appropriate place. Please do not litter the environment with these.
