Stage four of the 2015 Friends Life Women’s Tour will see a return to Hertfordshire, with a dash from Waltham Cross to Stevenage on June 20.
It will be the second year in a row that the borough of Broxbourne has hosted a stage start, with last year’s edition featuring a stage that rolled out from Cheshunt.
Stevenage hosts the Women’s Tour for the first time, with stage four in 2014 passing close by en route to Welwyn Garden City – a stage won by eventual victor Marianne Vos.
Stevenage Borough Council leader Sharon Taylor said: “Stevenage, the UK’s first new town, has an incredible sporting heritage and, with more than 45km of cycle track, is one of the country’s best towns for cycling.
“So it is fitting that we are set to host this exciting event. I look forward to joining fellow Stevenage residents and local sporting groups in welcoming the cyclists on 20th June.”
Full details of stage four, and all other stages, will be released in the coming weeks.
