Rating: Rate this Event Now

RideIt! Reading reveals some hidden treasures. With insider knowledge of the area our event manager is on home turf and has combined some winning cycle routes for this RideIt! An area that sees the mighty Thames River skim its borders, the cycling terrain is refreshingly varied for the geography.  

We offer you 2 days of cycling enjoyment to choose from with Mountain Bike riding on the Saturday and Road Sportive on Sunday. RideIt! is for anyone who wants to get out on your bike and have a great day's ride. 


The Mountain Bike Ride 9th June 2011 

As we are on Dean's home ground, the pressure is on for him to pull some awesome rides out of the bag, and he certainly does not let you down! This area has it all, with fast flowing tracks along the edges of the Thames, a blast of single-track action and a floury in the South Chilterns. This RideIt! Classic is pretty accessible for all to enjoy.           

Routes available at the Ride It! Reading Mountain Bike Ride are:
Short - 24 kilometres
Medium - 40 kilometres
Long - 48 kilometres

The Road Sportive 10th June 2011


Nestled just over the Thames lies the Southern Chilterns and this is where this cycling adventure gets in to motion. Envisage mile upon mile of country roads, rolling farmland and some teasing mini hill climbs. Now live it, and join us for a brilliant day in (and out) of the saddle! Depending on the vibe on the weekend, we will either direct you up or down Streetley Hill!

Routes available at the Ride It! Reading Road Sportive are: 
Fun - 19 kilometres
Short - 48 kilometres
Medium - 97 kilometres
Long - 145 kilometres
