We’re delighted to announce that the Strawberry 50 is back this year and will take place on Sunday 1st September.
Established in 2015, the Strawberry 50 has become a successful mass participation sporting event with nearly 800 people taking part in 2017. The sportive is a fun and relaxed way to enjoy cycling along the country roads of south west Cambridgeshire and is open to cyclists of all standards. Participants range from young adults to veterans, from occasional cyclists to keen club riders. Everyone cycles at their own speed or with friends and family.
Choose from one of two routes – 55 miles, or a shorter 28-mile route. The courses are well signposted with marshals 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.
As in previous years the routes start and finish from Histon and Impington Recreation Ground (CB24 9LU), while 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.
There will be on-the-day registration for both the 28 and 55 mile routes on Sunday between 8.45am and 9.15am (please remember the 28 mile route option is only available from Histon). For those who have registered online, rider numbers will be advised by email on Friday 30th August. Rider numbers can be collected on the day from 8.45am to 9.30am from your starting location.
