Course Details
We'll take you from the outskirts of London, on open but quiet country roads through some beautiful towns and villages along the Thames Valley - including the jaw dropping views of Virginia Water and Henley-on-Thames. The beautiful spring countryside will provide the picturesque backdrop to this amazing day out, as you head for the glory of crossing the finish line in the bustling town of Reading.

The gradient isn't too hilly - but don't get lulled into a false sense of security. With around 5 miles to go lies the big bad climb known as Chalk Hill. It's tough on the legs but if you can pedal all the way to summit - it will make the feeling of crossing that finish line feel all the more sweeter.

This isn't a race. It's about taking part and conquering a challenge. So make sure you enjoy the views, stop at some of our lovely refreshment points, and soak up the fun-filled atmosphere provided by all of our amazing, friendly participants.

    Poorly signed on long long sections of straight... you didnt know whether you should of turned or just kept going
  • Did the 40 miles in 2019

    A totally amazing experience, a lot of effort and hard work has obviously gone into making this event happen.
