2022/July - DUNWICH DYNAMO
Date: 16 July 2022
Definitely not a sportive, the Dunwich Dynamo is nevertheless one of the 'must ride' events of the summer calendar for many cyclists. 2022 sees the 30th edition of the annual 200km night ride from London Fields in Hackney to Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast.
2022/June - TOUR of CAMBRIDGESHIRE (ToC)
Date: 10-12 June 2022 (Date changed notification 17.02.22)
The stage is set for an incredible cycling festival across the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend from June 10th to 12th 2022. The Tour of Cambridgeshire team has been hard at work organising a jam-packed weekend of live music, entertainment, seminars, food festival, events and activities for riders, their friends and families as well as interested spectators. We look forward to putting on the most exciting Tour of Cambridgeshire to date and hope you'll join us! Check out the latest details on our new website. The first event (Time Trial) has already sold out. We've also got a 60-day free Strava subscription trial for you and an exclusive HIGH5 webinar with Olympic Gold medallist Matt Walls.

2022/June - CHASE the SUN
Date: 18 June 2022
UK SOUTH - Sunrise to Sunset
Starting in the Thames estuary, the 200+ mile route bi-sects south London, passing Richmond park, bridging the Thames, onto Wiggin’s Olympic time trial route, plus west-country highlights, lush Vale of Pewsey, Silchester village hall, mendip hills, breathtaking Cheddar gorge, before arriving on the seafront finish at Burnham-on-Sea.
UK NORTH - Sunrise to Sunset
A double-century feat over an epic 200miles leaving from the beachfront at Tynemouth at the first ray of ocean sunrise aiming to reach the esplanade at Prestwick to witness the (hopefully glorious) sunsetting into the sea beside the Isle of Arran. A route full of stunning vistas, wilderness, heaths, rivers, lochs, castles and beaches, a challenge to inspire you when pedalling the longest day.
2022/May - RIDE LONDON
Date: Sunday 29 May 2022
The world’s greatest festival of cycling returns, with a new format, exciting new routes and a new partnership with Essex County Council. The first 10,000 UK general entry places for 2022 RideLondon-Essex 100 have now sold out in less than 24 hours. See below for details on how to enter the ballot for the remaining places.

2021/Sept - BROMSWOLD BIKEFEST
Bromswold BikeFest is a charity event (in its 7th year) is a number of fully marked cycling routes of various distances with a village fair atmosphere on the cyclists return.
This year we have 7 fully signed road routes from 2 miles (we close the road for this route so the younger children are safe) right up to 71miles. We also have a 21 mile off road route. Before any cycling starts we have a breakfast bar offering bacon, sausage or egg rolls and hot drinks. On the return to the village there is a bbq, beer & pimms tent, Huntingdon Brass Band and fete type stalls for your enjoyment. We are also hoping for a low flypast from the RAF (operational requirements permitting). In previous years they have sent their BBMF memorial flights Spitfire, Hurricane and even the Lancaster.
Every penny raised is split equally between Macmillan Cancer Support, East Anglia's Children's Hospices and MAGPAS Air Ambulance.
2021/Oct - CAMBRIDGESHIRE RUMBLE
With support from Richardsons Cycle group.
NEW ROUTE - 107Mile | 64Mile | 22Mile
