Gran Fondo
For those looking for something a little more competitive, the Road Race and Gran Fondo events provide an opportunity for riders to push their pedals to the limits and qualify for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.
The Gran Fondo is a mass participation event with a mass start, and gives all riders, regardless of race experience, a chance to compete against others in their age group for a chance to ride for your nation at the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.
Qualification Distances
Women & 60+ Men: 70 miles
19-59 Men: 100 miles
A race license is not required for the Gran Fondo, but participants must be at least 19 years of age. However if you qualify for the Gran Fondo World Championships, you will require a race licence to compete.
Road Race

Time Trial
This event is the UK's only qualifying event for the world renowned UCI Gran Fondo World Championships Time Tria, and the biggest time trial event held in the world with 100 participants per age group classification.
