We’ve got news. Pro Cycling team Vitus Pro and actual Olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy have joined the hundreds of cyclists taking on annual cycling sportive Tour De Test Valley this September.
Yup, that’s right, this is your chance to ride alongside an Olympian at the 7th Annual Tour De Test Valley sportive.
A three-time Olympic Gold medallist, an Olympic Bronze medallist and six-time world champion, Ed is a member of the Great British cycling team, as well as the most successful team pursuit rider in history. He is a World, Olympic and European Champion on the track, and also rides for the domestic road team Vitus Pro Cycling, who’ll be joining him to take on the picturesque countryside routes on September 14th.
With 25, 50 and 100 mile routes through the West Berkshire and Hampshire countryside, Tour De Test Valley is a legendary sportive in memory of pro snowboarder Nelson Pratt.
Over the last six years it’s raised over £300,000 for CALM, which has enabled more than 28,570 helpline calls and helped prevent 1,020 suicides. And, with an atmosphere like no other, Tour De Test Valley is not to be missed.

Check out last year’s highlights below:
Nelson’s Tour De Test Valley is the legendary sportive in memory of pro snowboarder and keen cyclist, Nelson Pratt, by his brother Chris and friend Marcus Chapman.
After Nelson tragically died in 2012, his friends and family wanted to keep his memory alive with the level of energy and passion that Nelson embodied. Inspired by his love for cycling, great food and even better company, Nelson’s Tour De Test Valley was born and has become CALM’s biggest event.
Join Nelson’s friends and family, passionate riders and some pro cyclists and spend the day cycling through peaceful green roads, munching homemade brownies and round it all off with cider, music and curry.
Sign up to ride alongside Ed Clancy, Vitus Pro and hundreds of others at Tour De Test Valley this September.
