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 Tour of Flanders or Ronde van Vlaanderen, Belguim. Probably the biggest Sportive on the calendar.

Tour of Flanders had its 101st edition in 2017. Today it is one of the five Monuments of cycling and one of the two major cobbled classics along with ParisRoubaix. This race stops Belgium. Fabian Cancellara won in 2014 and 85.7% of the population of the country watched his victory either live or on television!

The Tour of Flanders weekend will offer you the opportunity to ride in the amateur event "We Ride Flanders" 16000 riders tackle the course before watching the Pros on Sunday. Flanders is famous for featuring short, sharp climbs with cobbled sections.
