The Massif (88km/55 miles) & Mini Massif (70km/43 miles) routes both meander their way through glorious rolling downland scenery, pick their way through and around ancient woodlands, negotiate sunken lanes and bridleways and pass through charming “stuck in time” villages complete with timber-framed buildings and thatched roofed cottages.
The Massif has 12 off-road sectors totalling 55kms (62.5%) of the route’s total distance and the Mini Massif has 10 off-road sectors totalling 41kms (58%) of the route’s total distance.
So, although relatively short, with such high percentages of each route off road and on a variety of trails and trail surfaces, both routes offer a challenge for all levels of riders.
The underlying surfaces are predominantly chalk and clay embedded with sharp flints. Hard, unyielding and dusty when dry and very slippery and cloying when wet. Tyre choice and pressures will be key, especially for cross bike riders. We hope you’ll take your time to savour and not Rush The Ridge and the rest of the route. The Massif Route passes close by the prehistoric Uffington White Horse and the Iron Age Uffington Castles sites. If you haven’t visited these sites before, then do take the opportunity.
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 and make them available via our results page.
