Chilterns

Cycle Chilterns Ladies Only Rides

For 2015 Cycle Chilterns are running another series of organised rides in South Buckinghamshire. The ladies only rides are fun, recreational group bike rides led by an experienced female cyclist and will explore the country lanes and quieter roads of the Chilterns. All of the rides start in quiet market towns, most of which have train stations for easy access.

Ride leader Helen Biggerstaff has many years of experience and will be able to give information on what bike and kit to purchase and where to find female friendly bike shops.

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.
