The Red Kite Ride 2016 is organised by Marlow Riders cycling club on behalf of Wheels For All. We aim to offer a challenging and friendly sportive, and places have sold out in advance in each of the last three years.

The event offers three routes (50, 80 and 100 miles) in varied countryside through Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire, with all routes heading over the Chilterns and the longer routes heading into the Vale of Aylesbury.  All routes include a mix of hills and flatter sections. 

This year we have made the 100 mile route more of a challenge, introducing hills such as Whiteleaf and Wardrobes Lane in the first 40 miles.

Features of our rides include

  • Well stocked feed stations with the energy drinks and food.
  • Refreshments as well as shower and changing facilities at the start
  • Ample free off-road parking a short ride from the start.
  • Mechanical support at the start
  • Full electronic timing
  • Sweeper van in case of emergencies
  • Start in Marlow, close to the M4 and M40

All proceeds of the ride go to Wheels For All, a charity that provides adapted bikes, trikes and tandems for use by children and adults with disabilties or learning difficulties.  They have around 50 centres around the country providing activities to with local leaders to help participants gain exercise and enjoy the experience of cycling.  In 2016 they plan to open a centre in Bisham, just over the river from Marlow.
