The Henley Highwayman

16/09/2017 - Henley-on-Thames - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

The  Highwayman is an epic ride into the Chiltern Hills! Starting and finishing in the market place in centre of Henley, right outside the town hall, there are full mid and sprint options of 182, 120 and 62km to test your legs. These were the badlands back in the days of the Highwaymen, who hid out in these hills to rob the unwary, but there will be no hiding place on event day! The Chilterns climb, drop and weave unrelentingly; every mile will be hard earned!

This is not an out and out suffer-fest though, there is plenty to enjoy here too. The ride will be run to a sportive format, on open roads through some of the most beautiful English countryside! It's a grand challenge with a magnificent backdrop! Plus you get full on the road support, with multiple support and feed stations, roving mechanical support vehicles and all the atmosphere of the town centre start and finish (the full route also features a twin loop format that includes a town centre pass through where the crowds will spur you on for your second circuit!).

Finishers medals will be awarded for achieving Gold, Silver and Bronze time targets. You can ride it as a standalone sportive, but for those taking part in the Highwayman Duathlon, each distance will be subdivided into nine target time bands, which will earn you points towards your overall Highwayman score. Gaining the best score will involve maximising you performance, while keeping enough in the tank for the next day's run. Tomorrow is another day!
