It is with regret following the cancellation of the Circuit of the Fens road race on Sunday 26th July that we also have to cancel the Sportive based on the event on the Saturday the 25th July.
The two events are under the same traffic closures and it is too late for us to apply this year for the new permissions.
We would like to thank Whittlesey Town Council and Fenland District Council, and the people of Whittlesey for all their support and we plan to be back in 2016 with this very popular sportive.

Welcome to the second edition of the sportive based on the Professional Grand Prix road race held the day after.
The challenge matches the Pro event distance and at 132miles is one of the longest sportives in the UK, there are 2 shorter distances for all abilities.
The ride will start and finish in the Market Square in Whittlesey, on the edge of the East Anglian fens, so a good test for all riders.
The rides will follow the pros route before deviating into the surrounding Cambridgeshire countryside and into the fens before picking up the pros route back into Whittlesey town centre for a well-earned evening.
All routes are fully signed and there will be 3 feeds and a drinks stop on the Grand Prix route and 2 and drinks on the Elite route. The “Come and Try” will have one stop.
All rides will have full mechanical support at the start and at various points along each route.
There will also be a broom wagon to help out more terminal breakdowns.
There’re are many hotels and B & B establishments so why not bring the family and make a weekend out of it. Camping is available close by, allowing you the see the professionals the following day and those teams testing their fitness for the forthcoming Tour of Britain.
This weekend is the 2nd biggest cycle event in Cambridgeshire just behind the Tour of Cambridgeshire.
Further details and information will be up dated periodically on the website and newsletters.
