The Chilterns Classic

Saturday 31st July 2021 | Horspath Athletics and Sports Ground

Our Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing too technical, we would love to see as many riders joining us for one of our Classic events as possible.  

For our Chilterns Classic event we are heading to the Horspath Athletics and Sports Ground where you’ll start and finish your ride. The routes will take you on a ride through small country lanes and quaint English villages, with the Long and Middle routes entering into the Chilterns AONB. We hope in July the sun will be joining us for the day and it will be a glorious day of Summer Cycling.

Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports. We look forward to seeing you in June and remember with four different routes to choose from, there's something for everyone!

Small country lane riding with rolling roads. The inclines are gentle but don’t be fooled by the false flats, there's still some vertical ascent on these routes.
