Sunday 15th July 2018
The ultimate cycling Sunday combines the toughest one day sportive (52km to 161km) close to the capital, with a vintage cycling festival and live entertainment.
Event venue: Penn House, Amersham, HP7 0PS
Firmly established as one of the toughest sportive events in the UK and situated right on London’s doorstep, the Chiltern 100 takes in the finest riding the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has to offer. The sportive is a ‘best of’ the region’s many gruelling climbs, including the infamous Whiteleaf Hill and Wardrobes. Unrivalled route management, and routes for every level of experience have made this a firm favourite of club riders, social riders and those looking to test their legs on tough terrain. Please note: this event is an open road sportive.
Enjoy the retro-inspired Velo Village, with 30+ vintage market stalls selling cycling fashion, gifts, delicious food, and a craft beer tent. Taking place at Penn House near Amersham, Buckinghamshire in the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, enjoy a picnic or an afternoon cream tea on the lawn after a tough ride. There are activities for all the family, including a retro-inspired Concours D’Elégance competition, and LIVE coverage of the Tour de France on a giant screen.
