Histon & Impington Rec & Gamlingay Ecohub

The Strawberry 50 is a fun and relaxed way to enjoy cycling along the country roads of south west Cambridgeshire. With a choice of three courses, a longer 55-mile route, a 28-mile route and a shorter family-friendly 14-mile version, the event is open to cyclists of all standards.

New information for 2018 coming soon!

Participants range from young children to veteran riders, from occasional bikers to regulars. Everyone cycles at their own speed or alongside their friends and family.

Each course is well signposted with plenty of marshalls on hand throughout the day. Water stops and food and drink are available for sale around the course, offering a chance to take a rest, pick up a snack and chat with other cyclists.

New for 2017: additional start point in Gamlingay

As in previous years, the routes start and finish from Histon and Impington Recreation Ground (CB24 9LU). New for 2017, the 55-mile route also offers a second start / finish at Gamlingay Eco Hub (Stocks Lane, SG19 3JR). For information about Gamlingay Eco Hub, please visit the website.
