The Harp Hilly Hundred Reliability Ride is a popular early season training ride organised by the Harp Road Club, it has been run every year since its inception in 1954. Recognised as one of the harder reliability rides in the area, because of the unrelenting terrain through the Chilterns, it was originally 100 miles but is now approximately 100 kms. For those who don't feel they are fit enough for the full distance we also have a shorter 55km route.
The ride starts in Kings Langley, Herts and follows a challenging route through the Chilterns via Bovingdon, Berkhampstead, Whipsnade, Ivinghoe & Tring. It then returns through Ivinghoe and Berkhampstead to finally finish back in Kings Langley. The major ascents include the climbs of Bison Hill near Whipsnade, Aston Hill just outside Tring and Ivinghoe Hill past Ivinghoe Beacon
