Chilterns Wildwood CX Sportive
12th February, Woodcote Oxfordshire

Ride through where the Thames cuts the Chilterns at Goring, up into the jagged profile of the Chiltern Hills, on a mix of surfaces to test your pace, performance and handling.

This is the fourth year for the original CX Sportive, returning once again to Woodcote and this excellent Chilterns course!

fast all terrain riding

The route takes you south to the Thames, dropping on farm tracks to Mapledurham, to break you into the rougher stuff nice and easily. from there it’s onto Goring on a mix of roads tracks that include your first taste of bridleway. The route then winds cleverly northwards by taking you up and down the Thames ridge, making the most of the contours to shape your ride.

The final stretch south levels out to take some the strain out of your last miles back to the finish. Amazingly, the route design fits the full 80km route into an area that never sees you more than 6km in straight line from the event base! Excellent for winter ride support, or if you need to cut back in a hurry! At a time when the dark, cold and conditions make skinny tyre road riding about us unappealing as it gets, CX Sportives are the smart choice, with the pace, variety and atmosphere to spur you on through the winter weather!

80, 60 & 40km course options.
