Tour de Broads: Summer

Event Description

Welcome to the 7th edition of the Tour de Broads cycle sportive. It is the region’s biggest locally run and organised cycling event. As a social enterprise, all profits from the event are reinvested into local cycling projects with over £100,000 raised for local and international charities and cycling schemes in 2017.

Our Summer event is part two of the Tour de Broads series that starts and finishes the cycling season. We again aim to make your day out an experience to remember with a festival atmosphere in the event villages. We have two venues, updated routes to take in more Broads and more Broads villages, and we continue to offer complimentary drinks and food en-route, a warm welcome home with a unique commemorative medal and hearty handshake.
