The Spring colours are bursting out everywhere for this ride, but the true colours of the Chiltern Hills are revealed in the rugged folds of their profile.

The Chilterns Ridge Trail Ride is a fantastic trip through one of the best mountain biking corners of the home counties. Big climbs, rooty, rattly descents and fast, fluid singletrack are your route through the picturesque spring countryside of the Chilterns!

As ever, you ride will come fully signposted and supported, with route maps and GPS to help you find your way too, rider timing and full catering back at the event HQ. There’s no better way to finish a hard ride than with a cuppa and a bowl of our home made chilli!

You’re at the eastern end of the Ridgeway here, and the ride takes you straight out onto that ancient trail before a brief clip thorough corner of the town and then quickly out into the countryside for the rest of the day. You’ll soon find yourself climbing, as the pattern of the day is established. The Chilterns don’t lie flat for long; the climbs and descents come in continuous succession. And as well as rising and falling, the Chilterns twist and wind too; long, don’t expect straight sweeps of terrain. It’s a mix that creates plenty of physical and enough technical to test and entertain you, all the while leading you through the sort of landscape that makes cycling good for the soul!

    Friendly atmosphere. An interesting and varied route, Well marked and organised on the day. by the team

    I've ridden road bike sportives and mtb enduro rides before, but this was my first mtb sportive, and I really enjoyed it!It was a fairly small event, but in a good way. I chatted with a few people as I went around and everyone was really friendly.The course was more cross country on local bridleways and roads/tarmac than anything too steep or technical (it's worth noting the event photo shows a guy with a full face helmet and body armour, but a fast hard tail and bib shorts would have been more appropriate!), but provided a good opportunity to spin the legs and push my lungs :)There were two areas where the course on the ground didn't match the GPX file provided, but they were both small changes and the route was really well marked so it wasn't a problem.Overall, a good event that I really enjoyed.
