Route information
Both courses start and finish at The Buckingham School, London Road, Buckingham MK18 1AT.
Cycling through the Aylesbury Vale offers the chance for some beautiful scenery on quiet, undulating country roads. Both rides head north together towards the magnificent grounds of Stowe School, before splitting and turning south through the gently rolling lands of Buckinghamshire. The courses reunite at Steeple Claydon, before finishing together again at The Buckingham School.


All turnings will be marked with a large blue arrow on a yellow background. Specific hazards, such as steep hills and sharp bends will be signed with red letters on a yellow background.

Course split and rejoin:

The Course Split will be clearly marked with a ‘COURSE SPLIT’ sign at the junction and another sign after the split confirming which course you are now on.
  • The course split comes at 8 Miles, just before Preston Bissett hamlet
  • The courses rejoin at 32M (Standard)/12M (Short) just before Steeple Claydon
  • Both courses finish on the same route between Steeple Claydon & Buckingham
Please remember that signs can be tampered with on events such as these, therefore it is highly recommended that you download the ROUTE MAPS and bring them with you as back- up.
