The Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a top UK cycling destination with beautiful rolling countryside that provides challenging climbs and rewarding sweeping descents.
Both routes take riders through scenic and picturesque country villages including filming locations for Midsomer Murders, The Vicar of Dibley, Lewis, Miss Marple and Jonathan Creek. It also passes through Cobstone Windmill, which is featured in the classic film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Once back at the Event HQ, you can enjoy the Chiltern Valley Winery and Brewery's very own produce. This award-winning vineyard and brewery creates a range of red, white, rosé and sparkling wines, in addition to a variety of traditional farm-brewed ales.
The course is split into two route options. The Fun Ride or Half Pint, which is 35 miles with 723m of elevation and the Challenge Ride or Full Pint which is 57 miles with an elevation of 1,365m.
