Cyclefit Tour of the Chilterns
by Henry Peacock
With just a few days to go, the 2nd running of the Cyclefit Gran Fondo; ‘Tour of the Chilterns’ is shaping up into a bit of a classic. The numbers have grown a lot from last year and its expected to be another great event.
The event on Sunday 17th June starts and finishes from the stunning setting of the National Trust Chilterns Gateway Centre. All the usual qualities from a Cyclefit event can be expected, these include: free parking, hot and cold food availbale from the HQ cafe, on site mechanics and a bicycle fitting services from the Cyclefit team.
The Second Gran Fondo from Cyclefit Events
For anyone taking on the etape or the marmotte in July, the 150 KM route is a great practice ride with just over 3,000m of climb and explores some beautiful lanes and climbs of the Chilterns. The more sedate 100 KM route still gets 2000m of climb in and mirrors the start and finish of the 150 KM route. The organisers have made a few improvements to the course to avoid some of the less well-surfaced roads in the Chilterns.
For the first time this year the event will see the uniqu addition of gourmet feed stations where you can expect French baguettes, waffles and smoothies as well as free High 5 Sports Nutrition. There will also be mechanical support at the feed stations.
The 17th June also happend to be Fathers Day, you could take the rest of the day take the family and visit Whipsnade Zoo which is only a mile from the event HQ.There are relaxed starting times from 7.30am – 10.00am with chip timing to record your times.
