Brewin Dolphin Ridgeway Rouleur

Departing from the Kassam Stadium, home of Oxford United FC, the UKCE Ridgeway Rouleur offers the best of Oxfordshire’s stunning rolling countryside, passing through picturesque villages filled with quaint cottages and impressive manor houses.

Standard and Epic course riders head west straight away, making their way up the iconic landscape of the Wittenham Clumps, with stunning panoramic views of south Oxfordshire, before crossing the River Thames and winding out through small villages on quiet roads.

From Woolstone to Wantage, the Standard and Epic routes wind along and across the Ridgeway – Britain’s oldest road – which has been used by both ancient and modern traffic for more than 5,000 years. At the village of Uffington, riders are rewarded with a spectacular view of the mystical White Horse chalk remains.

While the short route passes through Wallingford, the best surviving Saxon Fortified town in England, all routes head towards Watlington, an area standing between the Vale of Oxford and the steep slopes of the Chilterns, Epic riders head towards the chalk grassland of Aston Rowant Nature Reserve before looping back below the traditional market town of Thame.

All routes rejoin and head back towards Oxford passing Chalgrove Airfield, next to a civil war battle site. With rolling quiet roads, and superb views across areas steeped in history, the Ridgeway Rouleur presents an ideal sportive to take in the very best areas of Oxfordshire while giving your all on the mixed terrain in the area.

Key Information

Kids Ride For Free

We want to encourage young riders to enjoy the pleasure of cycling. That's why all riders under 16 years ride for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Valid ID will be requested on the day.

Online pre-entry

Online pre-entry is the easiest way of entering and saves £5.00 per person vs. entering on the day. Online pre-entry will save you time on the day of the event allowing you to simply pick up your registration pack from the Pre entered registration points. Please note: If an event reaches its capacity we will have to close the event to riders wanting to enter on the day. It is therefore best to pre enter online to avoid disappointment!

On the day entry

On the day entries are available at all our events as long as the event has not sold out prior to the event day. On the day entries are subject to an additional £5.00 per person surcharge. Payment can be made with cash or cheque. You can fill out an entry form when you arrive at the event. One entry form must be completed per person. Wiggle Customers will not be able to receive any loyalty discounts on the day.

Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing Award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
