Cycling is the UK's fastest growing sport. It is the new rock'n'roll and is attracting people of all ages and abilities with recreational challenge rides. The Richardsons' Tour de Broads is a unique cycling challenge ride set across the beautiful Broads National Park with routes to challenge and stretch you and a festival start and finish to inspire you.

100 miles. Last year, you asked us for a "Ton up" option. Here it is. More Broads, more villages, more drinks stops. Complimentary food and drink stops. Sorted.

Broads 75

75 miles. The classic Broads National Park challenge. Be swept along riding in a bunch or make a whole day of it and take in the splendour of this amazing natural landscape. Complementary food and drinks stops. Ride alone, as part of a team/club/group.

Broads 40

40 miles. Ideal for new riders and those looking for a more realistic challenge. It is incredible how quickly the miles roll off in the Tour de Broads. No rush, no stress, enjoy the ride. Complimentary drinks stops.
