The Chiltern Hills double up their uses in the Wiggle Chiltern Classic sportive: not only do the winding roads make for some inspired climbing action on the bike, the hills are also a sight to behold whether viewed from the bottom, the top or halfway up on a demanding test of stamina.

Straight out of the starting blocks, this ride will have you going through the gears as we ease you in on a gradual gradient, before making you familiar with the kind of swooping descent that drops as much as you’ll have to make up soon after, a common trait for this swooping course.

Once you’ve crossed under the M40, the gradient settles and you’re free to get into your own rhythm, pace and time, not dictated by hill climbs, making this a great mid-season test for riders keen on testing their hand against the clock on a kinder course.

Once you’re past the outskirts of Thame, you’ll find yourself among peerless views across the Aylesbury Vale district in an area lined with quaint and quiet villages as you traverse the sheltered country lanes that link them. On leaving the loop exclusive to Epic course riders – just east of Oxford – you’ll enter the Chiltern Hills area once more on the way back to base.

A handful of manageable climbs wait before you can claim your finisher’s medal and recovery product, and hopefully you’ll have enough left in the tank to enjoy these on completion of a rewarding day out on the bike!

Key Information

We want to encourage young riders to enjoy the pleasure of cycling. That's why all riders under 16 years old only have to pay a small fee to cover the entry process. All under 16 riders must be accompanied by a paying adult. Valid ID will be requested on the day.

Mates rates / Group buy

A 20% discount will be applied automatically at checkout when you enter 4 (four) or more riders into a single event. This offer does not apply to No Excuses events, Demo Days, Brewin Dolphin Velo Club tickets and the UKCE Le Classique French Sportive. Mates Rates do not apply to any Late Entry offers.

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!

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.
