The Women’s Cycling Tour of Britain has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Organisers hope to re-schedule the event for 7th to 12th June 2021. The planned route for this year’s tour is expected to be retained when the event is staged next year with the race starting in Bicester and finishing in Suffolk.
The cycling’s governing body, the UCI, will release a revised race calendar for this season on Tuesday before confirming the dates for next year in the coming months.
“Following discussions with stakeholders and sponsors, as well as British Cycling and the UCI, we have decided to work towards June 2021 for the next edition of the Women’s Tour, and will not seek to re-arrange the race later in 2020,” said SweetSpot Group chairman Hugh Roberts.
“We recognise the unprecedented nature of the current global situation and the challenges for the UCI calendar and so wanted to take an early decision not to look for an alternative 2020 date.”
