Chilterns

The Red Squirrel Brewery Shop Ride

Type: 
Local Group Event (inc DATC and Audax Rides)
Cost: 
Free

The second in the Cycle Chilterns series of winter brewery rides. Same format as usual; turn up at the shop between 10am and 11am and grab a 'Beer Token' then head out on your bike for a bit and do your own thing or follow our suggested route map and on your return you can exchange your 'Beer Token' for 'Actual Beer'. What's not to love?

Saturday Saunter

The rides are for people who want to cycle more, but are put off by the state of the roads and the traffic and the lack of suitable group rides.  The format is an easy led ride incorporating a coffee stop, using quieter roads and traffic free-routes.  The ride gives an opportunity both to gain confidence in traffic and discover routes that avoid busy roads.

CTC brings the Tour of Britain to the Chilterns

31 March 2014
This September, the world's top cyclists will be racing through the Chilterns largely owing to the work of Sara Randle, CTC Senior Development Officer for the Chilterns Sustainable Gateways Project.
Slopes in the Chilterns

Stage Six of Britain’s biggest professional cycle race will cross the country from the start in Bath, heading through Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire on its way to a challenging final section through the heart of the Chilterns on Friday 12 September.

CTC’s Sara Randle approached the Tour of Britain organisers, Sweetspot, and acted as liaison between the organisers and the stage 6 stakeholders in order to secure the stage for the benefit of the Chilterns.

Easter Bikeability training with Cycle Chilterns

Designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads, Bikeability is cycling proficiency for the 21st century. Train with Cycle Chilterns!
Morning Bikeability level 1 session at Amersham

This Easter, Cycle Chilterns will be offering a number of free Bikeability sessions to children across the Chilterns. Following the same popular format of our sessions last summer, the training will take place over a week with two-hour sessions each day.

On Monday, the children will go through Bikeability Level 1, learning basic control and signalling movements in a safe environment away from cars and traffic. Children aged 10 years or over can then carry on to Bikeability Level 2.

BucksMTB Rides with Cycle Chilterns

Join CTC affiliate club, BucksMTB, for a great introduction to mountain bike riding in the Chilterns this year on one of their regular weekend group rides.

BucksMTB members have been riding and promoting mountain biking in the Chilterns for many years and have built up a wealth of experience and knowledge of routes in the area. In 2013 with the help of Cycle Chilterns funding, five more group members were trained on the CTC’s Mountain Bike Leader Course to become ride leaders.

Cycle Chilterns summer Bikeability sessions give children more confidence!

Last summer, 37 children took part in a successful series of Bikeability courses run by the Cycle Chilterns project. The courses took place over two weeks in Tring and Amersham.

For those of you not familiar with Bikeability, it is the new 'cycling proficiency'. Two levels were offered during the week, with Level 1 covering basic bike skills in a playground and Level 2 covering road skills. The course aims to give children more confidence and awareness of being on the road.

Many parents signed up for the course to give them a bit of peace of mind for when their children cycle with their friends on the road, arming them with the right skills and increasing their awareness.
