The ninth edition of the Women’s Tour, the UK’s leading international women’s cycle race, will take place between Wednesday 7 to Sunday 11 June 2023.

Next year’s race, which forms a part of the prestigious UCI Women’s WorldTour, has adjusted dates in order to allow the five-stage event to finish with two weekend stages.

The first details of the 2023 event will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Mick Bennett, Women’s Tour race director, said: “We are delighted to have worked with the UCI and British Cycling to finalise our dates for June 2023 enabling us to finish with a pair of weekend stages.

“Combined with next year’s overall route, one that will take us into new areas and cities of the UK, this gives us lots to look forward to as we approach 2023 and talk to potential sponsors about the opportunities at the race, including title and jersey partnerships.”
