Enjoy a dose of 'wild' on London's doorstep and join fellow adventurers on our 2 day guided, supported, all inclusive cycle experience in the Chiltern Hills.
'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 by a combination of pedal and foot. On this escape, you'll get both.
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 rejuvenated. What's not to like?
