Fans of international cycling have a treat in store this weekend when the first Women’s Tour passes through the county as part of the Hertfordshire stage of the race on Saturday May 10.

The route will pass through Baldock and Letchworth town centres before making its way through Great Wymondley, St Ippolyts, Langley and Codicote.

The new elite event, Britain’s first international women’s stage-race, will bring the world’s top riders to compete against Britain’s Olympic heroines, with the Herts segment starting in Cheshunt, home town of double Olympic champion Laura Trott and her pro-cycling sister Emma (pictured), and finishing in Welwyn GC, where the sisters began their cycling career with the Welwyn Wheelers.

North Herts district council leader Lynda Needham said, ‘I hope everyone comes out to support the cyclists.’
