Welcome to the Tour of Cambridgeshire (ToC), the UK's first ever truly authentic Gran Fondo, making it unlike another 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. The whole event takes place on fully closed roads, around the stunning Cambridgeshire countryside, which allows you to feel like a professional from start to finish.
ToC is a cycling festival produced in the city of Peterborough on the weekend of 3rd and 4th June 2017 and uses the roads of Cambridgeshire, making the cycle race completely unique.
The event comprises two mass participation cycling events, which are held on fully closed roads, each of which caters for the full spectrum of riders from elite athletes to leisure riders. The two closed road events include the World's largest ever time trial, the ToC Chrono on Saturday 3rd June and the ToC Gran Fondo on Sunday 4th June.
The Tour of Cambridgeshire is the UK's only UCI Gran Fondo World Series (UGFWS) qualifying event. It is one of fifteen events in global series of mass participation cycling events comprising the qualifying series for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships. The World Champions in each age group win the coveted UCI rainbow jersey.
There is a maximum of 800 places available for the Chrono and 8000 places available for the Gran Fondo, which fully sold out at the 2016 event. ToC is a cycling festival with a major cycling EXPO, family entertainment and youth cycling events on site.
