Chilterns

The sun shone for the launch of a new CTC initiative in Henley this week as we linked up with the Electric Bicycle Network to bring you cycling, but not as we usually know it.

 
 
A short scenic route from Henley-on-Thames, around some of the more famous scenes in the Chilterns, and back to the riverside town to indulge in one of their finest cafes.

 
 
Aug 2013 - Now updated with even more hire and charge points. The CTC team in Henley-On-Thames are gearing up to host the first Electric Bicycle Network in the Chilterns!

 
 
The sunshine brought out the crowds, with 35,000 people attending over two days. For Cycle Chilterns, the busy show was the perfect opportunity to speak about cycling in the Chilterns.

 
 
Riding as CTC-affiliated Reading Cycling Club, we had entered a team for the sportive on the 2 June 2013. Great scenery and fantastic weather made for a fabulous but hard ride.

 
 
Sara Randle, Senior Development Officer for the Cycle Chilterns project, takes us through a quiet little 13 mile circular route in the Chiltern Hills, suitable for a wide range of abilities.

 
 
Aston Hill Mountain Bike Club was nominated for the Best Voluntary Group Achievement of 2012 after ‘Surface to Air’, the downhill mountain bike trail was built by volunteers from the club.

 
 
For beautiful cycling in the countryside, all less than an hour by train from London, the Chilterns is the place to go!

 
 
The Chilterns are soon to be the latest tourist area to host an Electric Bike Network so, as a local, I decided to give their electric bicycles a spin.

 
 
The Chilterns is home to Aston Hill, a Forestry Commission owned area dedicated to off-road mountain biking famous for its downhill runs created by our very own Off-Road Officer, Ian Warby. An added attraction is a new trail, 'Surface to Air'...
