What you need to know

The Tour of Cambridgeshire Festival is one of a kind; a mass-participation cycling festival for those who have a love and passion for a diverse type of bike and event. Our aim is to bring all types of cycling into one event, bringing all types of cycling together, enabling more and more people who have a love for any kind of cycling to be involved. The event is held at the East of England Arena and Showground from 1st-3rd June 2018, with a number of different disciplines, which are all held on fully closed roads.

There are 9 Events within the Festival: Gran Fondo Race, Gran Fondo Sportive, Chrono, Team Chrono, Mellow Vlo, Tour classic, Family Fondo, Folding Bike Race & Gravel Enduro Relay, as well as the Cambridgeshire Bike Show.

The Tour of Cambridgeshire has quickly become one of the most popular events in the UK, with the first being held in 2015. The route starts and ends in Peterborough. This part of the country is reminiscent of Western Flanders with unprotected roads, canals and narrow tracks. Luckily, there are a lot of riders to form a bunch and share the work. The locals come out in huge numbers to cheer on all the riders and help create a great atmosphere.

Also known as "The Hell of The North", it is the biggest 1 day race in professional cycling and you can test yourself over the same course 24 hours before the Pros. One of the easiest races to get to for UK riders, it is also one of the hardest to ride. The cobbles have to be experienced since words will never do them justice. We can ensure you are as prepared as possible. Basing you in Roubaix is ideal for soaking up race weekend atmosphere and seeing the Race.

The Pedal for Scotland Big Belter is a Sportive ride of 110 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh. The ride uses the same start and finish points as the Classic Challenge ride, but takes a completely separate route through the Scottish Borders, meaning you get the buzz of Scotlands biggest bike event on a quieter route designed for serious road cyclists. The transport service will serve Big Belter riders too, meaning there is an easy and hassle free way to get you and your bike to the start in Glasgow Green, or back home from Edinburgh at the finish.
