Sunday 1 September 2019 – Strawberry 50 Cycling Event
Hoorah! – the Strawberry 50 Cycle Event is back again in 2019 😎 ! It’s a fun and relaxed way to enjoy cycling along the country roads of south west Cambridgeshire with 3 courses: a longer 55-mile route, a 28-mile route and a shorter family-friendly 12-mile version (see below). The event is open to cyclists of all standards from young children to veterans and from occasional bikers to club riders. The 50 and 28 mile courses are well signposted with plenty of marshals on hand throughout the day, plus water stops and food and drink available for sale around the course, offering a chance to take a rest, pick up a snack and chat with other cyclists. Everyone cycles at their own speed or alongside their friends and family.

This year we have an exciting new 12 mile (20km) route – one of discovery around Cambridge with challenges and adventures for young and old, and plenty of places to stop en route!
