This is our monthly relatively 'Faster Paced Ride' where we try to help riders begin to bridge the gap between 'Leisure Rides' and Club Pace. It's also for those training for longer sportives, e.g. 70 - 100 miles where a minimum pace of usually c. 12-13 mph is needed to beat the sweep on the route. We don't draft - so you'll get a good work out and can enjoy your treat of choice at the Cureositea Tearooms at Ivinghoe! :)

This route has been designed to combine a range of hill climb challenges, through mainly quiet, scenic country lanes, with a few busier sections.

The total climb for the ride is 2686 feet / c. 820 metres - so this ride is about half the total distance and climbing of the Ride LondonSurrey 100, so excellent training for that event. Definitely one for more experienced riders.

Your bike must be in good working order for this ride and you must be in good health.

Please come prepared with:

- Two Spare Inner Tubes
- Money/Card to buy refreshments
- Water &/or Electrolyte/Isotonic drink or gels
- Snacks: E.g. Gels, Bars, or Good Old Flapjack works!
- Appropriate clothing for the conditions and for cycling this kind of distance: padded shorts or tights are highly recommended
