Event Summary

Event Overview

The 2018 Tour of Strines

A non competitive sportive ride over 50 miles with 8,700ft of ascent. Based at Bradfield Village Hall. The route covers some of the road used in the 2014 Tour de France, the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire and previously the Tour of Britain and Milk Race. The iconic and legendary Strines Valley is full of enchanted lanes which lead to some very steep climbs, some of which are over 25%. The route is very quiet with most lanes single track. The Strines is a particular training ground for the local elite riders including Russell Downing, Ben Swift, Tom Stewart, Connor Swift and in the past, Malcolm Elliott amongst many others.

All proceeds will be donated to the Sheffield Childrens Hospital. Post ride refreshments will be available at the HQ. New for 2018 will be a feed station half way around with refreshents to refuel our courageous riders. This is a non competitive ride and entrants won't be timed. Possibly the hardest 50 miles you will ever ride.

Sign on open from 7.30 first riders off at 8.30. The HQ is Bradfield Village Hall which situated in the picturesque village of Low Bradfield, 7 miles north west of Sheffield. The Hall is located on The Sands, a small lane opposite the village post office. Parking is available in the car park at the back of the cricket pavilion.

HQ Address:

Bradfield Village Hall, The Sands, Low Bradfield, Sheffield S6 6LB.
