Escape the City to the Chiltern Hills

UPDATE: Due to the restrictions imposed by the new government regulations we have made the difficult decision to cancel our final ride for 2020 (26-27 September). We will be announcing shortly all our spring weekend rides. We hope you can join us and #followtheredfox in 2021!

Escape the City 2021

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 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 with an enduring sense of achievement.
