Evans Cycles Sportive RideIt! Chilterns

Cycle Sportive , Prestwood – Sunday, 05 Oct 2014

Event Summary

Event Overview

Set in the heart of Buckinghamshire, we start with a gentle spin out of Prestwood and quickly descend into Great Missenden, the resting place and once home of legendary British author Roald Dahl. From here, we head north into some quintessentially British countryside riding, passing through several picturesque villages and visiting some of the best natural viewpoints the Chilterns have to offer. With some testing climbs along the way, including the demanding terrain around Haddington Hill (the highest point in the Chilterns), this ride is sure to test strength and stamina. As you pass Chequers, the Prime Minister’s countryside retreat, you’ll know that you’ve almost completed a fantastic day’s ride. The ups on this course are rewarded with some great descents, quiet roads and spectacular views in one of the UK’s oldest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
