Chilterns Gravel X

Watlington, Oxfordshire

Watlington, England, United Kingdom

Sat 16th July 2022

Starting at 08:00

Organiser's Description

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.
