The Pedal Revolution’s Tour de Broads Cycling Festival is two days of cycling heaven set in the beautiful Broads National Park.
Saturday afternoon sees the inaugural editions of the Richardson’s Retro Ride and Fatbirds-Titanium Ti Ride. Both events aim to celebrate bespoke, hand-crafted bikes from the past, present and future. It is an opportunity to press the pause button on the pace of busy everyday life and relive the bikes, kit and lifestyle of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s. 90’s and 00’s plus Legends of TT class alongside the wonders of modern day hand-crafted titanium bikes that couple traditional manufacturing with 21st century technology and construction. Whatever bike you love, bring it, ride it and celebrate it with us Saturday afternoon. Why not make a weekend of it and ride the biggest locally organised event the next day at the 8th Tour de Broads?
The Summer Tour de Broads on Sunday offers routes of 100, 75, 50, 25 miles plus the ever-popular family ride taking in as much of the Broads National Park as we can squeeze into your chosen mileage. Our 8th annual edition is again a celebration of cycling and riders of all ages and abilities and warmly invited to again take on a stretching personal challenge, enjoy a day-out on the bike with friends and family or ride with passion for their favourite charity.

Expect a warm welcome, the unique challenge of big open skies with occasional legendary cross-winds all without the hustle and bustle of modern life — let the Tour de Broads show you how the Broads National Park can become your favourite cycling playground.
