The Winter Boat Ride


210km cycling event starting from The Tichenham Inn, Ickenham. Controls at Great Kingshill Spar, Photo Control, Green Dragon Rare Breeds Centre, Helmdon War Memorial, Photo Control, Stoke Bruerne (The Boat Inn), Marsworth/Tring (Open Control) and Ickenham, The Tichenham Inn.

A ride out across the Buckinghamshire Downs, just right for a short winters day!

This is an x-rate event for experienced randonneurs with no manned controls or manned finish point. All main controls are 'open' so that riders are not constrained to visit specific venues. The event will use virtual brevets with digital validation (GPS, phototographs of info points, scans of receipts or other AUK approved Tool, TBC). Validation materials must be submitted to the organiser by the rider by email following the event. Entries will be limited to 30 or as required by guidence current at the time of the event. Riders will register at the start by the organiser taking a timed photograph of the rider and their bike (where photographs are used for validation they must contain a clear picture of the bike and landmark at the designated location). The recorded time is effectively the riders starting time and will be used to adjust the intermediate and final control times as required. Once registered riders will be required to leave the start area within 10 minutes. No more than 6 rider will be registered within a 10 minute period.
