Tour de Test Valley

In loving memory of Nelson Pratt, pro snowboarder and keen cyclist who tragically died in June 2012, we are pleased to launch a superb cycling sportive with three fantastic routes in the stunning Test Valley. The routes take in Nelson’s favourite training rides where he spent many a happy hour on his beloved ‘Treader’.

Everything we do here a Ride HQ is in memory of my best friend Nelson Pratt, to support the charity CALM, and their work to prevent male suicide. In the UK, 12 men everyday take their own life, and that has to stop.

We’d love it if you’d help us, by using your ride, to raise a few pennies for CALM. Doesn’t need to be a huge amount, £96 could answer 12 potentially lifesaving calls.
