The Great Tour cyclists heading to Scarborough as part of 6,700km round-Britain ride
Two riders – Hugh Roberts the Managing Director of the Tour of Britain professional cycle race and Robin Young – will be aiming to complete the challenge by bicycle, raising money and promoting the coastline along the way.
The next morning, they will head away from Scarborough at 8.30am, heading up the coast to Hartlepool.
As a result of having seen the Tour Series, Women’s Tour and Tour of Britain postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organisers SweetSpot Group decided to do something on behalf of the world of cycling in the UK to contribute to health and charities and causes in the UK.
Inspired by The Great Tour event that took place in 2010 and 2015, SweetSpot Founder and MD Hugh Roberts and long-time friend Robin Young are re-creating the ride, filling the gap between when the Women’s Tour and Tour of Britain should have taken place.
The Great Tour will aim to raise awareness and funds for chosen health charities and causes in 2020 ahead of the full event launch in 2021.
