Fourth Stage of the Tour of British Women takes place in Oldham


Oldham is set to host the fourth stage in the Tour of Britain Women 2024 which sees the world’s top female riders and teams go head-to-head across four tough stages of a cycling race. It takes place on Sunday 9 June

The event follows on from the success of the Tour of Britain 2023 – where the men’s competition ascended on the borough.  It is hoped that the event will inspire residents of all ages to take part in cycling, and take advantage of the borough’s amazing landscapes and terrains.  

This year, cyclists will come through Failsworth, and will officially start the stage, on Ashton Road around 11.15am. Then they will cycle down the Oldham Way, Lees Road, up to Lydgate, through Uppermill and Delph, up the gruelling Grains Road, down into Shaw, and then out to Rochdale.

Road closures will be in place and can be found on the Oldham Council website Residents and businesses that will be affected will be contacted directly on how it affects them.

While spectators are being encouraged to join in the action by watching for free from the roadside, TV providers will continue to broadcast live flag-to-flag coverage of each stage, and nightly highlights show, allowing fans in the UK to watch wherever they are.

The race will also be live-streamed on the British Cycling YouTube channels. For updates on the routes, timings and the best places to watch the action, make sure to follow the I Love Oldham Facebook Page – where the most up-to-date information will be published.

Businesses and residents looking to get involved in the action can also take part in Oldham Council’s Tour of Britain Women competition. All they need to do is decorate their home or business for the event, send a picture via the online form, and they could win £100.
