The road race will start and finish in the picturesque village of Stamfordham, situated around 20km west of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
The women’s race will be in the morning over 106km – consisting of three laps of the long route (see map above). Spectators are invited to watch the action unfold in what promises to be a spectacular weekend of cycling and festival fun.
