Strawberry 50 -Cycle Event 6th September

Header-1024x561An exciting new community cycling event is set to take to the roads in September.

The Strawberry 50, which takes place on Sunday, September 6, will provide three different routes aimed for all different types of cyclists.

These will range from a 14-mile family ride, otherwise known as the Strawberry 14, to the longer 55-mile Strawberry 55 route.

There will also be a 28-mile route around country roads in south-west Cambridgeshire.

 The new event has been organised by Friends of Histon and Impington Recreation in partnership with Histon and Impington Bicycle Club and all the events will start and finish from Histon and Impington recreation ground.

The Friends are also behind the popular Bonfire Burn 10k and Flaming June half marathon events.

The Strawberry 50 event gets its name because of Histon’s long standing connection to the fruit industry through Chivers Farms. The routes will include areas that were used for fruit growing.

Neil Davies, one of the event’s co-organisers, said: “We hope the three Strawberry 50 routes will appeal to cyclists of all ages and interests.

“Much thought and planning has gone into the event over the last nine months and we really hope that this will be a fun day out for all.”

Pre-event online registration is required for both Strawberry 55 and Strawberry 28.
