First run in 2007, the Princes Risborough St. Georges Sportive is a cracking early season ride!
Make no mistake, this is challenging course. Check out the route stats and the figures may not look too daunting to the seasoned eye, but dont be fooled. Take another look at that buzzsaw profile. Those climbs just keep on coming! Theres no single route defining monster climb here (although a couple of detours off the ridge will stretch you on the way back up), however, the Chilterns dont lie down flat for long, so youll be climbing and dropping like youre on a mini mountain stage!
Its a stunning area of the countryside though, so the surroundings will help take your mind off the gradients. The Chilterns in Spring a great place to be out on a bike!
The shorter routes will follow much of the same course, so the hilly nature applies to these too, however they will cut out the second descent and climb back up to the main ridge, which will save you some energy. The 80k option works out as a great day ride and a superb introduction to cyclosportive riding!
The UKCE Ridgeway Rouleur offers the best of Oxfordshires stunning rolling countryside, passing through picturesque villages filled with quaint cottages and impressive manor houses.

Over the years the SWRC May flyer has increased in popularity and we get consistent positive feedback on its friendly nature and efficient organisation. The availability of free homemade refreshments is also very popular. There is a choice of two routes, both fully road marked. The Flyer 90km route meanders around the North Downs while the 153km Flyer Challenge crosses the North Downs on the way to Amberley in Sussex before returning along a different set of mainly country lanes.
Both rides are reasonably challenging and while some will enjoy the climbs like Coombe Bottom (tackled by a different route on the outward and return legs) more than others, everyone should enjoy the quiet country lanes of Surrey and Sussex.
The Sportive starts and finishes in the picturesque grounds of Broughton Castle.
All routes take riders through the stunning Cotswolds which is one of Britain's largest areas of outstanding natural beauty.
The same level of rider support and facilities are included in this years registration fee. This represents FANTASTIC VALUE FOR MONEY. All proceeds will be donated to local and Rotary charities.
