There are three versions:
The main route is 108km in length with just under 1200m of climbing.
Or it is possible to turn left at Great Kingshill, cutting out the farthest loop to do the medium version which is 60km. This misses out the bigger climbs of the main Chiltern ridge but has the pleasant climb up Hatches Lane from the Hughenden Valley as well as a good few shorter ones. It has 528m of ascent in total.
Finally, the short route turns at Penn to miss out all the big climbs and also the main road sections, giving a 44km route with 440m of climbing.
The main climbs on the 108km route are:
All the events are reliability rides which have a target speed range of 12.5mph – 18mph. That equates to about 3½-5 hours for the long ride, 2-3 hours for the medium and 1.5-2.5 hours for the short version. We expect that there will be some fast riders but, for avoidance of doubt, the events are not races. Riders will be set off at intervals to reduce the risks from riding in large bunches on narrow lanes.
The routes will also be signposted with numerous orange arrows. Please note that, occasionally, a couple of the arrows have been taken down by members of the public before some riders got to them so they are best seen as guidance rather than a foolproof way of navigating.
