We will meet outside The Elgiva theatre for brief introduction, warm up and bike check. There is parking at elgivia and on Sunday it is free. We will be returning to our start point. We will head out through town via Berhmapsted road towards Cholesbury and Hawridge. This is a flatter ( for the Chilterns) quieter country road and good place to get your confidence. We will continue up towards Hawridge and we will test our gears on the way! Then continue on a loop to Wigginton and then back to Chesham. This will be a hillier route but you can do this!
Terrain is on a slight gradient to start, with some rough surfaces but very suitable for road bikes. This is an extended beginners route which means a little bit more challenging either with distance or terrain but nothing you can’t manage. For absolute beginners I would not recommend this one.
We ride at the pace of the slowest rider and always wait so that no one is left behind.if you walk a hill or want to stop, that's ok, we will always wait for you.
Please remember to ensure your bike is road worthy, with tyres pumped up and bring enough water. Bring some money as we can go for a drink after if the group wish to.please bring a helmet, it's not compulsory but I am a bit neurotic when it comes to your safety and would prefer that you did.
The ride is weather dependant and if I think it could affect your safety, mine and dampen our enjoyment, I will cancel.
