Cyclone Festival of Cycling


Countdown to Entries


The Cyclone Festival of Cycling will once again attract thousands of cyclists and spectators to the North East as it returns for its twelfth edition on 15th - 17th June 2018.

The event gets going on the evening of Friday 15th June when the Tyne 6 Bridges family/leisure rides take place on traffic-free routes alongside the Tyne, beginning in central Newcastle.

On Saturday 16th June, thousands of riders will take on the four routes (34, 64, 90 & 106 miles) of the Cyclone Challenge Rides through Northumberland's matchless landscapes. Meticulously planned and signposted, these rides have extensive first aid and mechanical support as well as a number of well-stocked feeds. Many of the villages on the routes also ply riders with home-made cakes and teas. This is one of the UK's premier "sportive" events and should be on the bucket list of any keen cyclist.

Sunday 17th June see the focus switch to elite racing with a national women's race, the Curlew Cup, and an international men's race, the Beaumont Trophy. Both attract stars of the sport, including World and Olympic Champions, who relish the spectacular and tough course and the support of the many spectators who spend the day cheering them on.

Everybody from the guys at the start doing the numbers, the starters through to the marshals’ on the course were all fab.
Just completed my first Cyclone and wanted to thank you all for a fab day. The organisation was superb. Thank you very much.
Great organisation, really friendly and fantastic to be around the pro teams and all the support vehicles.
I must say congratulations (again) to you and your team for the impeccable organisation of the Challenge.
It really was a fantastic day, massive credit to all those involved from marshals to supporters to volunteers at feed stations for making it such a success.
The event is amazingly well-organised and a great day out. We hope to join you again next year.
Just needed to say thank you to you and to all those wonderful folks who made this year’s events so great. No hassles – smooth as you like – a pleasure both days. Looking forward to the next event.
