It’s a historic week for women’s cycling in Britain as the world’s top female cyclists race on British roads as part of the Women’s Tour. This will be the first time ever that the world governing body for sports cycling, the Union Cycliste Internatiole (UCI), holds a women’s international stage-race in Britain.
VolkerWessels UK is sponsoring stage 4 of the race, which runs from Cheshunt to Welwyn Garden City (97.8km) on Saturday the 10th of May and will be passing our head office in Hoddesdon. The initiative of sponsoring the Women’s Tour is closely linked to our Corporate Responsibility ambitions and focusses on our local community involvement, health, well-being and diversity objectives.
