Event Summary

Event Overview

The event is a two distance road ride the full 100km and a shorter  85 km , both rides will feature some of the iconic Chiltern Hills, it will be a tough ride for February and will avoid the main roads. 

The event will be limited in terms of numbers with a maximum field of 300 riders. the routes will be signposted and GPS files will be available and sent out to pre entered riders.

This will be a ride to test yourself over the distance, no food stops will be provided but there will be plenty of food at the HQ for pre and post event carbs as well as the provision of a licensed bar for those not driving back.

This event has now been run for the last 6 years with people complementing the event for the friendly atmosphere and well marked challenging route

This year the event again starts from the Chiltern Sports and Socail Club Maple Lodge , Maple Cross which is easily accesible from the M25 /M40 the 100 km ride will follow last yers route with avery slight deviation at the end to use a quieter road .

The shorter route has been amended from last year once again  to take advantage of quieter roads

Riders will start in groups and there will be 3 times to aim for in the longest distance, 3-3.5hrs -Gold Standard, 3.5-4.15hrs Silver Standard and 4.15 to 5hrs Bronze standards
