Set up by cyclists, for cyclists, Hampshire Tour Series is a series of cycle sportives established in 2014 by members of Odiham Cycling Club & 1st Gear Cycles.

The Tour of the Candovers, in its 9th year, is a cycle sportive originally set up by the friendly folks at Odiham Cycle Club to encourage members of the Hampshire & surrounding areas cycle community to come together and enjoy the fantastic cycling routes, here on our doorstep. With routes of 20, 40, and 60 miles, The Tour of the Candovers, which will take place on Sunday 3rd September, has something for everyone alongside the friendly and social atmosphere of a local bike ride.

All proceeds of The Tour of the Candovers will be donated to Winchester-based charity Naomi House & Jack’s Place, ensuring not only a fantastic day out on two wheels, but the knowledge of giving something back to the community as a result.
