Description

209km cycling event starting from Cholsey, E of Didcot. Controls at Waterperry (Garden Centre Cafe), Chipping Norton (Old Mill Cafe) and Cholsey., plus 4 information controls.

A gently rolling ride through the Chilterns, Cotswolds and the flatter West Oxfordshire plain.

PLEASE ENTER ON-LINE

Note that on-line entry is discounted - you do NOT need a PayPal account to use this. THERE WILL BE NO ON-THE-DAY ENTRIES

Route is broadly to Henley, over the Chilterns to Waterperry (cafe), past Bicester into the Cotswolds to Chipping Norton (cafe), via Brize Norton to near Stanford-in-the-Vale, and back to Cholsey.

Given the time of year some roads are likely to be mucky: please fit mudguards to help us maintain good relationships with our commercial controls.

Under new management for 2022, with Phil Dyson's excellent supervision.

Cholsey station is on the London Paddington-Reading-Oxford line.
