Weeks to go until event: less than 4 weeks
Hemel's only cycling sportive, Hemel Hillbuster II, takes you on a choice of three routes over challenging Chiltern hills and through beautiful countryside and villages around Dacorum. The event starts and finishes in the iconic Gadebridge park, finishing place previous Men's and Women's Tours of Britain.
DENS is organising the event, and all proceeds will enable us to continue providing support to homeless and vulnerable people in Dacorum.
The route will be fully signed and marshalled and there will be a support vehicle, food stations and first aid.
100km - for practised riders, the ultimate Chilterns challenge, conceived by experienced local rider and club cyclist to delight and please you! Heading out towards Dunstable Downs, via Aldbury and Cholesbury, then out to Wendover, Cadsden, Great Missenden, Chartridge, Chesham and returning via Botley and Bovingdon.
60km route - a wonderful route, including typically challenging Chilterns hills, out to Whipsnade, through pretty villages of Ivinghoe, Aldbury, Cholesbury as far as Chesham and then returning via Botley and Bovingdon.
