The Harp Hilly Hundred Reliability Trial is a popular early season training ride organised by the Harp Road Club, it has been run every year since its inception in 1954. Recognised as one of the harder reliability trials in the area, because of the unrelenting terrain through the Chilterns, it was originally 100 miles but is now approximately 100 kms. There is a shorter event option of 55 kms for those who dont feel they are fit enough for the full distance.

The ride starts in Kings Langley, Herts and follows a challenging route through the Chilterns via Chesham, Berkhampstead, Whipsnade, Ivinghoe & Tring. It then returns through Ivinghoe and Berkhampstead to finally finish back in Kings Langley. The major ascents include the climbs of Bison Hill near Whipsnade, Aston Hill just outside Tring and Ivinghoe Hill past Ivinghoe Beacon.

The entry fee for the Harp Hilly Hundred is £10 for the 100km ride and £5 for the 55km ride with at least 50% of the entry fees received for the event donated to charity. In both 2011 & 2010 we donated £1200 to charity. In 2011 it was to Linkage and in 2010 it was split between the three charities, St Albans Mencap, Shelter and Vic Dashwood Memorial Fund. For 2009 the selected charity was the RSPCA Blackberry Farm, Quainton and a cheque of £300 was presented to the charity. In previous years, charities we have donated to include, MacMillian Nurses, St Albans Mencap & Richard House.
