Challenge yourself, make the best of your weekend and join fellow adventurers on our 2 day guided, supported, all inclusive cycle experience in the Chiltern Hills...

Escape the City 'Escape The City to the Chiltern Hills' is a cycle ride with a twist. We love cycling. But we also think the Chiltern Hills are best explored through a combination of pedal and foot. So, if you think the best cycle rides finish with a causal meander through beautiful countryside, this is the escape for you.

Expect wonderful scenery, a top notch group of people (they always are) and a proper retreat away from the smog and stresses of the city. We guarantee you'll go back to work refreshed, relaxed and with an enduring sense of achievement.
