THE Che­nies Velo Clas­sique takes place on Au­gust 31st

The Che­nies Velo Clas­sique is a fan­tas­tic day out for any­one who ap­pre­ci­ates the pas­sion, el­e­gance and her­itage of cy­cling both past and present.

With three dis­tances of sportive (100, 60 and 30 miles), based in and around the beau­ti­ful Chilterns, these fully sup­ported rides will start and fin­ish in the beau­ti­ful grounds of Che­nies Manor and wind there way through the lanes and iconic climbs that make this area such a mag­net for cy­clists.

There will also be a 30 mile RETRO CLAS­SIQUE (for pre 1989 bikes) rid­den in the style of Cy­clings Golden eras – riders are asked to dress in suit­able at­tire and en­ter into the retro inspired ‘spirit of rac­ing’!

All routes will have the op­tion to ride sec­tions of the Chilterns very own ‘Strada Bianca’: these an­cient chalk bri­dle­ways through beech lined woods will be fully sign posted for you to savour the de­lights of rid­ing in the style of the leg­endary cham­pi­ons of past eras

With pic­ture per­fect routes, feed sta­tions and me­chan­i­cal sup­port at all key points along the way, along with clear sig­nage and down­load­able map­ping for each dis­tance, you can rest as­sured you’ll get the very best ride pos­si­ble.

All routes will re­turn to the Manor with a warm welcome from the crowds en­joy­ing the re­laxed at­mos­phere of the Che­nies Velo Vil­lage.

The sportives are the flag­ship event of the day which is a cel­e­bra­tion of all things cy­cling for the whole fam­ily.

Rider en­tries in­clude ac­cess to the beau­ti­ful grounds & gar­dens of Che­nies Manor, with its Coun­try House feel why not tag a Cham­pagne Pic-nic or Cream tea onto the end of your ride and en­joy a quintessen­tially Bri­tish Bank Hol­i­day.
