The Tour of the Abberleys stage race has always been held on the first bank holiday week-end in May, but next year the May Day bank holiday has been moved to Friday of the second week-end to form part of a VE Day anniversary week-end. Having considered several options for the Abberleys, the outcome is that it will be held as a 2-day stage race on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May. Saturday will comprise a short Prologue TT and 42-mile road stage as usual. On Sunday there will be an extended stage of over 60 miles on a challenging new course (shorter for the over 60s). HQ will be Great Witley village hall again and we’ll have the support of the Midland Bike Marshals
