Grand Tour Sundays

Our Grand Tour Sundays are already legendary after their first year! As a club we celebrate the three Grand tours of the year by choosing one Sunday during each of the races The Giro, The Tour and the Vuelta. On the chosen Sunday the club returns to Cotswold cycles to immerse ourselves in the food and culture of the country in question! The events bring out many of our club members and with the added bonus of a King of the mountains competition within each group it makes for a very enjoyable day for members and their families. Dates will be announced nearer the time.
