The 2022 Curlew Cup will take place on Sunday 9th October (re-scheduled from September following the death of Queen Elizabeth II) and will be the eighth and final round of the National Women's Road Series. The event will be based in the village of Stamfordham, a few miles outside Newcastle-upon-Tyne and will consist of three laps of a 25 mile circuit, taking in the rolling country roads and lanes of the area. Each lap will include an ascent of the famous Ryals climb, which has often seen decisive action in previous editions of the race. You can view maps and download the full race route on our maps page. Entry will be via the British Cycling online entry system.

More Information

Following the success of separating the public events of the Cyclone Festival of Cycling, from the races, in 2021, the 2022 Cyclone Festival will also be split over two weekends. The public rides, the Tyne 6 Bridges and the Cyclone Challenge Rides will take place on 24 and 25 June, whilst the races will be run three months later on 18th September.
