The Chilterns Classic event is heading to the Horspath Athletics and Sports Ground where you’ll start and finish your ride. The routes will take you on a ride through small country lanes and quiet English villages, with the Long and Middle routes entering into the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The scenery on all the routes will be stunning throughout, there will be lovely flat sections as well as some challenging climbs, but with 3 distances on offer, there is something for everyone. The routes will be extremely well signed and will have multiple feed stops provided by OTE Sports Nutrition.
