The 2018 OVO Energy Women’s Tour may now be over, but riders can still enjoy an authentic Stage One experience by tackling the race’s official sportive in Suffolk.

Taking place on Sunday 1 July, the OVO Energy Tour Ride offers 30 and 80-mile circular routes, both starting and finishing at Southwold, home of Adnams, which means there’ll be a free drink for everyone afterwards!

The routes combine roads that are being used on this year’s opening stage of the OVO Energy Women’s Tour with some that have been used in previous editions of the race – for example the beautiful coastal route from Thorpeness to Aldeburgh. There’s no better way of experiencing what the world’s best have raced on in recent editions of Britain’s leading women’s stage race.

Information on the two routes is available here – don’t forget to sign-up to enter by clicking here.  Entry to either route is £35 with £5 from every entry going directly to Breast Cancer Care, the official charity of the event, and everyone gets a medal for finishing, as well as the chance to relax in the beautiful setting of Southwold afterwards.
