Info for Riders:
All the fondos amply capture the essence of the Chilterns with fantastic 'Red Kite country', superb scenery, and demanding hills that will be a robust challenge for any good club rider. The hills are not big but have demanding gradients of up to 21% and for the 'Gran' the hills are relentless and brutal.
Don't think that these rides will be easy. Experience shows that the frequent climbs on the 'Gran' and 'Medio' Fondos are tough, strength and energy sapping, and a robust challenge for all good sportives. Excellent pace judgement will be your only friend. Consider yourself warned.
To be clear, the Gran Fondo is targeted at the good club rider. The descents are thrilling, full on, and a couple are technical. The nature of the Chilterns means that there are junctions at the bottom of these descents so care and excellent braking are required. Please take time to read the hazards page. Each ride has refreshment stops which will provide free fluids and an assortment of foods on the day.
