Event Overview

An excellently varied ride, that takes you on a West Chilterns tour, the route takes you from intricate lanes and steep, wooded Thames-side climbs, to the broad, open sweeps below the Oxfordshire Ridgeway. Variously fast & flowing with some calf burning climbs, but always inspiringly scenic, this is a rewarding ride in every sense.

Info for Riders

An excellently varied ride, that takes you on a tour along the Thames Valley, through the goring Gap and up into the south Chilterns! The route takes you from intricate lanes and steep, wooded Thames-side climbs, to the broad, open sweeps below the Oxfordshire Ridgeway. Variously fast & flowing with some calf burning climbs, but always inspiringly scenic, this is a rewarding ride in every sense. The route choices come in three flavours as usual; short and mid total 86 & 103km respectively, with the full course weighing in at 136km with 1,827m of height gain. It's a spectacular day out on the bike!
