British Cycling and Lloyds Bank have taken over the Tour of Britain Women, formerly called the Women's Tour, for its ninth edition, which will start on June 6 in Welshpool and finish on June 9 in Manchester.

There was some concern that the race might not happen again this year after SweetSpot, the former organisers, entered liquidation after financial difficulties. The event, which held its inaugural edition in 2014, was already cancelled twice in 2020 and last year, and another cancellation would have marked a serious loss for women's racing in Great Britain.
