Welcome to the first replica sportive based on the Professional Grand Prix road race held the day after.
The challenge matches the Pro event distance and at 132miles is one of the longest sportives in the UK, there are 2 shorter distances for all abilities, plus a family ride.


The ride will start and finish in the Market Square in Whittlesey, on the edge of the East Anglian fens, so a good test for all riders. There are many activities based in town and Raleigh Cycles are bringing their “Road Show” to add to the entertainment, excitement and support the riders and their families.


The rides will follow the pros route before deviating into the surrounding Cambridgeshire countryside and into the fens before picking up the pros route back into Whittlesey town centre for a well-earned evening.
