Chilterns Explorer 75 miles (from Grove)
Sun 29 April 2018 - 9:30am to 5:30pm
(Updated 22 April). All day ride to the Chilterns. This ride is particularly intended for those aiming to get some distance in their legs before the Century ride in May, or other long rides in the summer. The distance allows us to reach from Grove to the beautiful scenery of the Chilterns.
Riding first East, we start on the quiet roads and work our may past Didcot and Wallingford before the first of two big climbs – past the Bluebells at Swyncombe. Our lunch stop is after 30 miles at the Barn at Turville Heath.
Then, we are refreshed for a downwards section into Henley-on-Thames, to see where the river leaves the county, and back upstream (and up the second big climb) to reach our second stop at Wallingford at about 54 miles. From there, it is relatively flat 21 miles back to Grove.
