The prestigious Women's Tour cycle race will come to Colchester and North East Essex in 2021 as the penultimate stage takes place between Colchester and Clacton-on-Sea on Friday 8 October 2021.

The stage will proudly showcase Colchester’s Northern Gateway Sports Park, the new, 76-acre, multi-use venue that includes a one-mile, closed-road cycling circuit.  In a two-year agreement with race organisers SweetSpot, Colchester will also host the start of the Grand Départ of next year’s race in June 2022.

There will be great opportunities to spectate and get involved in what promises to provide an exciting day in the town.

Stage five will mark the first time that Colchester welcomes the Women’s Tour, which forms a part of the prestigious UCI Women’s WorldTour series, although the town’s notable links to cycling include hosting a Tour of Britain stage finish (2010) and four rounds of the Tour Series.

The full route of this stage, including SKODA Queen of the Mountains and sprints locations, will be revealed in due course.
