As a proud supporting partner of The Women’s Tour, Vertas Group took part in a unique media ride opportunity on Friday 17th September, riding the closing section of the Suffolk stage of the AJ Bell Women’s Tour that will decide the winner of the 2021 race on Saturday 9 October.
The media ride was led by CAMS – Basso Bikes rider Clover Murray, who hails from Frinton. The ride was attended by riders from stage, location and supporting partners in Suffolk, along with two motorcycle outriders from Suffolk Police.
The riders experienced the final 32 kilometres (20 miles) from Wickham Market to the stage finish on the seafront in Felixstowe.
