STAGE 8 finsh-5.JPG

Tour of Britain in Southend

1st ever visit of Men's Tour

Friday 8th September 11:45hrs start

Looping around the Essex countryside, the second day of the Tour of Britain’s eastern doubleheader is a spectator-friendly stage between Southend-on-Sea and Harlow with a distance of 146.2 kms.

After rolling out from Southend’s Western Esplanade at 11:45hrs, in the shadows of the city’s historic pier, the first 65 kilometres loop around the towns of Rochford, South Woodham Ferrers, and Burnham-on-Crouch, offering fans the opportunity to catch the peloton at multiple locations.

The route then commences its westerly path towards Harlow, initially running parallel to the River Blackwater, and then through Ingatestone, which is regularly named as one of the most desirable places to live in the UK.

Stage six finishes on Third Avenue, where Lorena Wiebes triumphed on day two of last year’s Women’s Tour. Visit the Tour of Britain Stage 6 page. This is the route. All Tour of Britain photos courtesy of Nick Phipps Images. Go to the Club rides page to see how we are part of the action!
