Marlow Red Kite Ride 2018

Cycle Sportive , Marlow – Sunday, 02 Sep 2018

Event Summary

Event Overview

2018 will be the seventh year we have run the highly successful Red Kite Ride.  This sportive is based in the picturesque village of Marlow, and run by Marlow Riders cycling club.

We will have three routes covering 50, 80 and 100 miles. All three routes go over the Chilterns and the longest routes extending out into the Vale of Aylesbury.  The routes include hills and flatter sections, so are suited to experienced riders aiming for a fast time and for riders aiming to complete a 'century' or a 'half' for the first time.  

We will have two well-stocked feed stations with usual energy drinks and food.  The start / finish is at Marlow Sports Club which has refreshments as well as changing and shower facilities.  We will have free off-road parking a short ride from the start.

About the Event

Info for Riders

The popular Marlow Red Kite Ride is returning for the seventh time in 2018, having sold out in advance for each of the last six years.

The sportive gives you a taster of the Chilterns, a top UK cycling destination. Beautiful rolling countryside, home to the graceful Red Kite, provides challenging climbs rewarded with sweeping descents.

For 2018 we have routes across three distances, 50, 80 and 100 miles, each with well stocked feed stations and toilet facilities.  All routes take you through quintessential old English villages and countryside, filming locations for Midsomer Murders, Vicar of Dibley, Lewis, Miss Marple, Jonathan Creek.  

Riders cross the River Thames twice, passing the finish line of the internationally renowned Henley Royal Regatta, and again at the end of the ride as they return to Marlow across the iconic Grade I listed Marlow Bridge.
