The UKCE Gravel Series Chilterns routes

Starting at the Culden Farm just outside Henley-on-Thames these routes will take you on an off-road adventure through the Chiltern Hills AONB.

As the name would suggest, there are a fair number of hills to challenge you, as well as a few short and sharp descents littered with roots and flint.

Although not overly technical, these routes will keep you alert, on your toes, and ensures the event is a grand day out.

Long Route: 89km and 1326m elevation

Middle Route: 55km and 871m elevation

Short Route: 29km and 549m elevation

Rook Route: 18km and 308m elevation
