Chilterns Gravel X - 16th July


Date: Sat 16 Jul, 2022

Venue: Kingston Blount

RIDE OVERVIEW

Close to London but far off the beaten track, the Chilterns Gravel Xplorer takes in parts of the famous Ridgeway and the glorious hills in the heart of this region. Nearly all of the route is off road including some secret local spots & a few climbs both on tarmac and gravel. A cracking summer gravel day out

DISTANCE: 92KM | ELEVATION: 1228M

RIDE DIFFICULTY 3.5/5

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY 3/5

PERCENTAGE OF ROUTE OFF ROAD 75%

Bike & Tyre Choice: Mid summer on a mix of wide gravel paths, a bit of singletrack, some grass & 25% tarmac. This definitely favours a gravel bike over a mountain bike though as with all off road rides, there is no perfect bike and on some sections wider tyres would be ideal. On our recon rides we used 38mm Schwalbe G One All Rounds, anything with a similar tread will work.
