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.
At the same time, there is also a kids-friendly Strawberry 12 Adventure Cycle Ride, a unique 12-mile ride around Cambridge following a route map and including a special treasure trove quiz along the route with prizes. There will be medals and certificates for all under 12 riders. You can register on the day at Histon and Impington Recreation Ground, where the route begins and finishes, between 9.45am and 10.30am.
