Details:  Tour de Femme, Sunday 12th November 2006, 8:00am, start line Canberra Yacht Club

The Tour de Femme is a women’s-only twenty kilometre ride that doubles as both a race and a participation event.  In 2006 it will be held on Sunday 12th November.  Many of Australia’s top female riders have competed in previous events and are expected to return this year including Oenone Wood.  Previous winners have included Oenone Wood, Alison Wright, Kim Palmer and Tracey Gaudry.  There are a range of age divisions with separate prizes that are hotly contested each year.

In addition to those interested in racing, the Tour de Femme attracts a large number of participants who treat it as a ‘fun-run’ on wheels.  More than 600 riders competed in 2005.  Everyone who enters by the closing date will receive a T-shirt and a water bottle. It is not necessary to have a club or open racing licence to enter.  Riders from teens to those in their eighties participate.

On line entries will be open in the next few weeks from this website.  Results of previous year’s Tours can be found here.

Race starts at 9am on Sunday 12 November and registration is from 4pm to 6pm on Saturday 11 November at Canberra Yacht Club.
