CELEBRATING THE BIG 10!!!
STAY TUNED FOR 2022.
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.
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.
