News – Tour of Cambridgeshire 2016

Offering the UK’s only route to the UCI Amateur Road World Championships, the closed road event aims to build on its augural year with the inclusion of a raft of new initiatives celebrating the very best of the local community and an enhanced experience for both entrants and spectators.

Places have been boosted from 6,000 to 8,000 in response to overwhelming feedback in 2015, bringing the event in line with some of the biggest and most established Gran Fondo events on the continent.

With the top 25% of finishers in each rider’s category qualifying for a place at the UCI World Cycling Tour Finals and a shot at the coveted rainbow bands, the east of England event will offer a unique riding experience.

But, whilst those at the sharp end of the field will be racing hard, organisers Very Cool Events Company are determined that the true spirit of Gran Fondo will take root in Cambridgeshire’s fertile soil;

“We want every single rider to have the best cycling experience of their life,” says Malcolm Smith of Very Cool, “we intend to create a real festival atmosphere at the Tour of Cambridgeshire and really build a Gran Fondo community of race, sport, leisure and challenge riders. We want everyone to leave the weekend with a huge smile on their face.”

Entries for the Gran Fondo are now available at whilst pre-registration for its sister event the UCI sanctioned Tour of Cambridgeshire Chrono is from Saturday 12th September with entry opening in November.
