OVO Energy Women's Tour
Message from the District Council.
The OVO Energy Women's Tour 2018 returns to Daventry District next week, with the Northamptonshire stage of the international cycling race taking place from Rushden to Daventry on Thursday, 14 June.
Last year thousands of people turned out to cheer on the Grand Depart, including excellent support from parishes across our District. We hope that hosting this year's finish should provide an even more exciting spectacle.
Please find attached information and maps about the route through Daventry District, with cyclists expected to arrive in our District just before 1pm and finishing in Daventry Town Centre at around 2.30pm.
We are in touch with a number of schools along the route which are being provided with flags and clappers to cheer on the cyclists. If parishes along this year's route would like additional quantities of these, please contact us as soon as possible – we will be delivering to your areas this Friday, June 8.
