Races summary
Here's what races are available for The Chilterns Ridge Trail Ride
Route information
This ride takes participants straight out onto an ancient trail and then quickly out into the countryside for the rest of the day.
The climbs and descents of Chiltern come in continuous succession. This route will rise, fall, twist and turn so don't expect straight sweeps of terrain. This multi-terrain route creates plenty of physical and technical tests to entertain you on this incredible cycle.
Routes will be fully marked with orange signs and orange ribbons (you will shown samples of these at the ride briefing). Everybody follows orange. At route divide points, you will see a set of yellow signs, with “Full Route”, “Mid Route” or “Short Route” written on them, pointing in different directions. At this point, follow the right sign for the route you are riding. Once you get beyond the route divide point, you will start following orange signs and ribbons again.

Did the race in 2019
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.
