The Henley-on-Thames 'Short Cycle' Route

A short scenic route from Henley-on-Thames, around some of the more famous scenes in the Chilterns, and back to the riverside town to indulge in one of their finest cafes.
Ride start in Henley

Henley-on-Thames is a wonderful place to start and finish a bike ride. Not only is it a beautiful place to walk along the river or cycle around the black and white buildings, but it is full to the brim with restaurants and cafes to feed you up for a bike ride. It is also has a train station in the very heart of it.

Once you’ve cycled out from Henley-on-Thames, it doesn’t take long before you’re out of traffic and surrounded by countryside. The roads are reasonably quiet and tend to meander around cottages and farmland.

Tidworth Freeride takes off this weekend

The Bike Park, which features seven trails for riders of all ages and abilities, numerous jumps, drops and berms, has already been attracting enthusiasts, both civilians and the forces at the nearby garrison towns.

With the future of the site put in the balance by concerns that the trails on site were too challenging, CTC, the national cycling charity stepped in to support Tidworth Freeride and now welcomes the Park to the CTC Bike Park Network. It joins four others in the charity’s partnership mountain bike sites across the UK.

A Network of Electric Bicycles are set up in Henley-On-Thames

Aug 2013 - Now updated with even more hire and charge points. The CTC team in Henley-On-Thames are gearing up to host the first Electric Bicycle Network in the Chilterns!
Chiltern Valley Winery have joined the EBN

The picturesque town of Henley-On-Thames in Oxfordshire is already a real hub for tourists and there is a strong network of businesses there to cater for them. The new Electric Bicycle Network is aimed at  increasing  the number of cycle users in the town, increasing cycle tourism and will hopefully lead to a much wider change in transport and leisure behaviours.

We’re very excited to have an Electric Bike Network in Henley as part of Cycle Chilterns

Cycle Chilterns attend the Herts County Show

The sunshine brought out the crowds, with 35,000 people attending over two days. For Cycle Chilterns, the busy show was the perfect opportunity to speak about cycling in the Chilterns.

Cycle Chilterns is a new project and the Herts Show was a fantastic opportunity to get our message out and tell people about who we are and what we are doing, along with our plans for this year and next.

The Shoretrax Portable Mountain Bike Trail gave people a chance to give mountain biking a go. The 60 metre timber track was a hit with riders of all ages and abilities, with 500 riders signing up to have a go on the bikes supplied by Lovelo Cycle Works in Berkhamstead. Having Shoretrax is a great way of giving people a chance to give mountain biking a go.

Notes to Editors: 

The £3.6m funding for the ‘Travel Actively ‘ consortium is part of a £40m investment from Big Lottery Fund’s Well-being programme in community health schemes across England.  Fourteen organisations, including local health bodies and leading charities are receiving funding to deliver interventions to encourage healthier eating, increase physical activity and promote good mental health.

Many of the projects will target vulnerable and marginalised groups such as families struggling with food poverty; older people experiencing loneliness and isolation; and young homeless people.

Big Lottery Fund, the largest distributor of National Lottery good cause funding, is responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised for good causes by the National Lottery. We are committed to bringing real improvements to communities and the lives of people most in need and have been rolling out grants to health, education, environment and charitable causes across the UK. Since June 2004 we have awarded close to £6bn.

The Well-being programme: In 2007, Big Lottery Fund awarded £165m funding through its Well-being programme to support the development of healthier lifestyles and to improve well-being. To deliver this programme, The Big Lottery Fund appointed a number of organisations that will each deliver a portfolio of projects in England. The £40m funding awarded today builds on the work of the portfolios in each region and on a national level.
