The UK's only fully closed road UGFWS Gran Fondo and UGFWS Chrono event
The Tour Of Cambridgeshire is unlike any other mass participation event in the UK. Uniquely the event caters for everyone whether you are an elite racer, an athletic sports rider, a challenge rider, or just out to test yourself in a more leisurely way on your bike, on closed roads, around the stunning Cambridgeshire countryside. The format is the same as a big city marathon with riders racing to win at the front right back to people wanting to challenge themselves, ride for charity or have a nice day out with the family in a traffic free environment.
If the following describes you then the event is for you:
Saturday: Chrono -
Be a participant in the largest time trial in the world and be treated like a pro – this is open to all abilities from elite to complete novice.
Sunday: Gran Fondo -
For ToC 2017, we have added communities for more riders to take advantage of the fully closed road event. We have dedicated start areas and communities for Tandem and Trikes, Recumbents, Fixed Wheel, Folding Bikes and also Classic Bikes.
Please take a wander through the website for more details or like our facebook site. While you are there check the volumes of praise for the 2015 and 2016 events and our commitment to raise the 2017 event to even higher levels.
