Pro bike racing this weekend in Welwyn


The bike racing season is upon us- The Giro starts inBelfast on Friday, but closer to home stage four of the Women's Tour finishes in Welwyn town centre on Saturday 10th May. This is a great opportunity to see elite women’s bike riders battling it out- you can go to the finish for the sprint and to enjoy the show that Herts County Council is putting on in Howardsgate or watch the Queen Of the Mountain climb up Digswell Hill a couple of miles before the finish.

Entertainment at Howardsgate starts at 10am with live bands, a continental market, Active Health Zone, Sponsor Zone, Women’s sport zone, Marketplace and the Tesco Demo area. Full details are on the Welwyn Hafieldcouncil website .

Digswell hill is here.

Getting to Welwyn is easy- around eight traffic free miles each way along the Alban Way and Welwyn bike routes, slightly less via Cooper’s Green Lane or Hatfield Road. If you have kids, take them!

Just for a moment, close your eyes and imagine what it would be like if we had a major race finishing in St Albans….
