About Tour of Cambridgeshire

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.

Aaron, Sportive Breaks Rider, 2017: "I simply had the privilege of forgetting about all the process and concentrate on the event. Which is exactly what I wanted to focus my efforts on. "

The Routes

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.

Long Route 120km

A super flat route in the Fens. The highest point of the ride is 72m above sea level! Even this route though has some lumps at the start, expect some effort in the first 30km. From then on, the route is pretty flat but the challenge is the winds that on a blowy day can make this route as tough as they come.

DISTANCE  120 Km       ELEVATION  412 M.

Where to Stay

Peterborough

The race starts and ends in the Peterborough Arena & Showground so staying in town or just outside is the best option. Both of our hotels are right by the race village so you can leave your car and roll to the start.
