It's less than 24 hours until stage 4 of the Women's Tour gets underway. 

The world-renownedd event is coming to Southend tomorrow and is expect to draw large crowds. 

Racers will set off from East Beach in Shoebury from 11am and go on a 117km circuit through Rochford and Maldon, before heading back into Southend and finishing along the seafront in Westcliff near to Arches Cafe.
