"What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet." Romeo and Juliet (II, ii, 1-2)
2010 marks the 10th anniversary for the Tour de Femme and to celebrate Nelson Events have a new addition to the all women tour - the Tour de Femme Randonnee.
Randonnee, taken from French, to mean cycling a set distance over a given time, allows those not as experienced in bunch racing or without the desire to race at the pace of New Zealand's top female cyclists to complete the Tour de Femme. In short, 'they've either been there and done that, they're still getting there but not ready just yet, or they have no inclination to actually get there!'
There are no performance prizes for the Randonnee grade, however, there will be specific additional spot prize pool.
Total distance for the Randonnee is approximately 190km, accumulated through 5 stages over 3 days - visit http://www.nelsonevents.co.nz for more details on each of the stages.
More information to follow soon. We'd love to see you here in Nelson, for your cycling summer and enjoying this wonderful WOMEN'S ONLY cycle tour.
