WE ARE BACK!!
ENTRIES OPEN FOR 2021 NOW.
We are so pleased that after the crazy, bonkers, awful year we’ve had that the event is back, we missed you and all your smiles so much in 2020 – we can’t wait to welcome you back! It goes without saying we will be following all government and British Cycling event guidelines, we promise to keep you updated.
We vow to make this year even better and friendlier than ever. Cycling has been so important to so many of us over the last year, both physically and mentally (especially us!) and we’re just so chuffed that we’ll be doing it together again in our stunning corner of Hampshire.
One of the UK’s most loved sportives born from the tragic loss of the wonderful Nelson Pratt but offering hope, fun, physical challenge and a lasting legacy through a shared community passion to reduce suicide numbers and smash the stigma surrounding mental health.
Please ENTER NOW and keep your eye out for the new ‘Ride On Nelly’ jersey that will be released very soon.
If you have any questions whatsoever please feel free to get in touch!
Nelly rides again!
Marcus, Chris and the Pratt Family.
The routes are all on tranquil roads allowing you to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
The routes will be impeccably signed and offer well stocked feed stations to keep you fuelled.
All riders will also receive a quality goody bag.
Nelson’s Tour de Test Valley proudly support the Campaign Against Living Miserably. CALM is leading a movement against suicide through vital, life-saving support, impactful campaigns and collective action. On average, 125 people take their own lives in the UK every week and that’s just not ok.
We believe that strong community events like ours can help lower these statistics. As a society we are losing our sense of community, NTDTV is a simple way to connect both physically and mentally. Your entry and heroic legs will support CALM’s work and help change this horrific stats.
This event for me holds something really special, despite Nelson’s story being one so tragic the positive atmosphere, hope and welcoming feeling that radiates on the day is unbridled in my opinion. To see every level of cyclist hitting the roads in support of Nelson and CALM is incredible and the routes and setting are so stunning. I would recommend this to anyone, an absolute must in your cycling year.
