Chilterns Ride - Christmas Week Empty Chilterns Ride - Christmas Week

Post  Kurt 2011-10-17, 11:50

I am looking to organise a ride during Christmas Week, probably 29th December, to shed a few pounds gained over Christmas...

It will be our favourite route, about 30 miles, but with some tough climbs, so shouldn't be underestimated. It is a classic XC route in the Chiltern hills and lies between Stokenchurch and Henley on Thames.

This route was classified as a hard route when originally published in MBR Magazine.

It has a lovely mix of singletrack, doubletrack, bridleways with long descents, sharp climbs and a lovely pub stop for lunch at the 'The Lamb' at Satwell.

Duration- 4-6 hours of riding (we did it in just over 3,but we were keen ).

Start / Finish :

arrive 0945 for 1000 start at Cowleaze Wood carpark nr Stokenchurch, Cowleaze Wood Car Park

Plenty of notice, so you folks who have often said you want to come along can!

Kurt Very Happy

Woody, it's a Thursday. I planned it specially so you could come along mate Wink

Pleased to see you've got the day off Neil Very Happy

Let's hope it's not raining, as I think the route might not be viable if too wet, given the clay... Shocked

Fingers crossed cheers
