UPDATE: Government regulations permitting, we are optimistic we can run our 'covid safe' rides in September. There may be slight variations to the current schedules, but we will ensure you still receive an epic 2 day weekend cycling adventure! Join our mailing list for regular updates.
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 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.
