The Women’s Tour, the award-winning and trailblazing cycle race, will take a one-year hiatus in 2023.

Owing to a combination of increased running costs (approximately 20% higher in comparison to the 2022 race) and a reduced level of commercial support, it has proved impossible to deliver the proposed event.

Work on plans for next year’s edition, which will mark the 10th anniversary of the inaugural Women’s Tour, are underway. Wales will host the event’s Grand Départ for the first time as part of a long-term agreement already in place with the Welsh Government.
