More locations across the Diss Express area are set to be swept up into a cycle-frenzy after further details of the Aviva Women’s Tour were announced this week.

It was revealed back in February that 132km Stage One of the event, which runs from North Parade, Southwold to Norwich on June 15, would visit Harleston and Attleborough.

The Aviva Women’s Tour also provides a fantastic platform for us to showcase the county to an international audience through the extensive TV coverage and distribution of the race highlights which all helps to generate additional visitors to Suffolk and boost the local economy

Wortwell, Pulham St Mary, Pulham Market, Tivetshall St Margaret, New Buckenham, Old Buckenham, Bunwell, Tacolneston and Fundenhall have all been pencilled in to feature some of the route.

Pulham Market will also host the third Chain Reaction Cycles Sprint of the race, with points and time bonuses awarded to the first three riders across the line in the south Norfolk village.

Cllr Goldson, cabinet member for health at Suffolk County Council said: “The Aviva Women’s Tour provides a wonderful opportunity for communities, towns and villages across the Waveney District to engage with this sporting spectacle as it passes through this part of our fantastic county for the very first time.

“Evidence from past events has shown us that people are inspired to get active and think about cycling as a direct result of watching the race, which all helps to achieve our ambition to become the most active county in England.
