Tour de Broads Sportive

The Tour de Broads on Sunday was a super busy day! 1200+ plus riders… I’ve just uploaded 2400+ images to two galleries – start & finish… It was a super day – Barry Hoban was a complete gent and it was a pleasure to photograph a real Tour de France legend!!

More than 1,000 riders took part in the second Tour de Broads on Sunday.

They were joined by former professional cyclist Barry Hoban, who won eight stages of the Tour de France between 1967 and 1975.

Starting at Weston Longville, cyclists either took part in the 40-mile ride, sponsored by Archant, publishers of the EDP and Norwich Evening News, or followed a 70-mile route.

The longer route took in Wroxham, Strumpshaw Fen and a ferry crossing at Reedham before going through Loddon and skirting Norwich back to the start.

Organiser Luke Rumblelow, from Revolution Events, said: “We were overwhelmed by the positive comments, smiles and unruffled enthusiasm, particularly at the finish. With all the support on the day, we have raised funds to support local grass-roots cycling projects.”
