The Cycle Chilterns 'Brewery Rides' are a series of rides taking place throughout the winter months with added incentive. Each route will be a 15-20 mile road route with a stop-off during the ride or at the end to enjoy a pint of real ale from one of the many fantastic breweries in the area. The rides are open to everyone.
Great Missenden to The Chiltern Brewery, Terrick
9am-10am: Collect your beer token and easy-to-follow route map from the Cycle Chilterns team at Great Missenden train station. You don't have to follow the suggested 10.5 mile route to the brewery, you can make your own way there if you want to. Route extensions will also be suggested on the map.
10am-noon: Riders arriving at the Chiltern Brewery between these times will receive a free pint of real ale (or soft drink) in exchange for their beer token.
The Christmas Shop: During November and December the brewery extend their usual range of delicious wares to include many more Christmas Gifts. These include fruit gins, fruit wines, whisky, liqueurs of all kinds as well as the usual English wines, chutneys, jams, biscuits, sausages, cheese and much more. Not forgetting their huge range of bottled beers. (We recommend bringing a rucksack to carry everything home safely!)
The suggested route back to Great Missenden train station is a 7 mile road route with most of it being downhill after a short climb past Chequers. Or you could head off into Wendover and get a direct train back to GM, or just ride home without returning to GM - it's entirely up to you!
