Race Information 

The 2023 Curlew Cup will take place on Sunday 17th September and will be the 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.

More Information

Following the success of separating the public events of the Cyclone Festival of Cycling, from the races, in 2021 and 2022, the 2023 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 30 June and 1 July, respectively, whilst the races will be run two and a half months later on 17th September.
