Following the postponement of the 2020 Women’s Tour owing the COVID-19 pandemic, the race dates for this year’s race are Monday 4 to Saturday 9 October 2021.

The planned route and stages for last year’s postponed race – including our Grand Départ in Oxfordshire and a final stage between Haverhill and Felixstowe in Suffolk – will go ahead as intended.

This year’s race will also visit Walsall on stage two, feature a first-ever individual time trial stage in Atherstone, Warwickshire, before our East of England doubleheader begins with a stage between Colchester and Clacton on Friday 8 October.
