Le Tour de France visited in 2014 - since then, the silence has been deafening. Until now.

The Saffron Walden Grand Prix is a National A ranked road race based around the historic market town of Saffron Walden. The race will cover 12 laps of a 14.3km circuit, totalling almost 172km and showcasing the finest roads in the area – there are plenty of opportunities to watch the bunch lined out on the fast, winding roads of north west Essex.

The race will take place on fully closed roads, with medical cover provided by St John Ambulance. Local food and drink vendors will supply refreshments in Saffron Walden's market square. 

Hear the roar of thousands of fans lining the roads, as the country's best cyclists compete to become the first champion of the Saffron Walden Grand Prix.
