Event Details

Nestling between the Cotswolds and the Berkshire Downs, Faringdon (Oxfordshire) provides the perfect setting for the Le Tour de Farcycles (TdF).

This year, the TdF 2024 takes place on Saturday 13th July, coinciding with FollyFest 2024, Faringdon’s annual music and community arts festival. After you’ve finished your ride and enjoyed lunch with us, why not stay around to soak up the atmosphere?

With flat bits between some impressive hills, our environment creates opportunities for all levels of cyclists to enjoy and, if desired, extend themselves. We also provide hospitality that has been acclaimed by many of our previous participants. Depending upon which ride you choose, there are several food stops manned by friendly locals and serving delicious homemade fare.

Based on unanimously favourable feedback, this year’s event uses the tried and tested routes from 2023.

There are three British Cycling graded rides to choose from:

PRIMO-30 – 30 miles of rolling Cotswold countryside that is just enough to stretch someone looking for a first event. It is also the choice for regular cyclists to have a social meander through some of the region’s prettiest villages. The route is also perfect for families who would like to enjoy a day cycling together.

MEDIO-50– 50 miles taking in some of our favourite country lanes. This is the perfect ride for cyclists who want to try a longer distance for the first time or who want a longer ride while still having enough energy for lunch afterwards.

MASSIMO-80 – 80 miles taking in some hillier terrain that will stretch regular cyclists with a big hill or two, while still enjoying the archetypal Cotswold scenery. Back in time for lunch to relive your epic ride with your cycling buddies.
Everyone gets lunch at the end in a private courtyard so that they can share experiences. Staggered start times are designed to get the leaders of all rides to the finish time at roughly the same time, which means some of that sharing can take place during the finishing stages of the ride.

The event has become popular among cyclists of all abilities and is particularly enjoyed by families and younger cyclists, who are especially encouraged to take part.
