Running since 2015, the Tour of Cambridgeshire has quickly become on of the most popular events in the UK. The route starts and ends in Peterborough with a pleasant 12pm start. This part of the country is reminiscent of Western Flanders with unprotected roads, canals and narrow tracks that can be battered by the wind. 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.
The Tour of Cambridgeshire is a quick, relatively flat race over completely closed roads where the biggest challenge is the wind. Starting and finishing in Peterborough with a very social 12pm start, this is a great event for new and experienced races as well as those just looking for a fun ride over closed roads.
Dont be fooled by the elevation profile of the Tour of Cambridgshire. Similar to Western Flanders, the challenge is all about how you tackle the winds. Leaving Peterborough and heading south, the route starts with a few small lumps before settling into the flat lands and unprotected lanes where the headwinds could make the route a real struggle.
