Tour de Football

Calling cyclists of all ages and abilities – we need you!

The route is split into 13 stages varying in length from 98 miles (day one, Newcastle to Leeds) to 10.9 miles (day 14, Fulham to Wembley). Choose one stage, multiple stages or challenge yourself to complete the whole tour.
