The Cambridgeshire Classic

Saturday 14th August 2021 | Huntingdon Racecourse

One of two events in conjunction with our Charity Partners at Alzheimer’s Research UK, the Cambridgeshire event is part of our Classic Series which has been designed with all riders in mind. There are three routes to choose from and nothing too technical, so we would love to see as many riders joining us as possible.  

This event helps raise awareness for the fantastic work Alzheimer’s Research UK does and goes a long way into making breakthroughs for Dementia treatment and care possible. Regardless of which route you choose from the four on offer, the event will take you on a fantastic ride through the County of Cambridgeshire. 

Starting at Huntingdon Showground all routes head out past Brampton Wood and round the edge of Grafham Water. The Long route undulates continuously along the route clocking up nearly 800m of vertical ascent without ever going over 80m above sea level.

The three routes available will take you on an adventure out of Cambridgeshire, across to Bedfordshire and, on the Long Route, you’ll even briefly ride up into the East Midlands county of Northamptonshire. Across the three routes and three counties, you’ll be treated to many kilometres of quiet country lane riding with a variety of forestry and farmland lining the route.

Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports. We look forward to seeing you on the start line in August and for you to continue helping ARUK make breakthroughs possible.
