Freedom to Ride
TDF Edition

3 Days in July 2021

Middlesbrough Sports Village,

Ride as far as you want, as fast as you want. Great for people new to organised events or for those wanting to get some structured training in, car-free!

Brilliant for young riders – we had families riding together for the first time at the summer events!

18:00 – 20:00 | 3 days in July 2021 (Wednesdays or Thursdays)

We post Timing Chips and Rider Numbers to you before the event.

On the Monday before the event, we need you to book a Start Slot and complete a COVID form. This must be done on the Monday.

Covid Questionaire & Start Slot Booking

No entries on the day.
Entries close 6 days before the event.

For any questions relating to the COVID Questionnaire, Time Slot Booking or missing Timing Chips, email

New for Summer 2021, the popular Freedom To Ride TDF Edition!

We’ve added these 3 additional dates to the popular Freedom To Ride Series and moved the location to Middlesbrough Sports Village and the excellent cycle circuit.

Arrive from 17:45 for an 18:00 start, take to the 1km circuit and ride as far or as fast as you want. In 2020 we had families enjoying the traffic-free closed-circuit ride, doing a few laps for the first time together. We had experienced seniors setting some P.B.s or bringing along friends to enjoy Sportive style riding for the first time.

Named The TDF edition as we’ll be showing the highlights of that day’s racing on the big screen whilst you enjoy a post-ride  BBQ and Beer, all included in the £15 entry fee. Under 16’s ride free, just email us before, to book the U16 on, once the accompanying adult has booked.
