“BRUTAL CAN BE BEAUTIFUL”
Read the Cycling Weekly route review here.
Firmly established as one of the toughest sportives in the UK and situated right on London’s doorstep, the Chiltern 100 takes in the finest riding the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has to offer – proving that brutal can be beautiful. The sportive is a ‘best of’ the region’s many gruelling climbs, including the infamous Whiteleaf Hill (as featured on Simon Warren’s list of the 100 Greatest UK Cycling Climbs) and Wardrobes. Unrivalled route management and support ensure that your focus is 100% on your ride, whether the Chiltern 100 is your main challenge in 2017 or a crucial leg of a longer journey.
NEW FOR 2017 – the Chiltern 100 Sportive has joined forces with the Chiltern Cycling Festival to create the Chiltern 100 Cycling Festival. Enjoy the challenge of the Chiltern 100 Sportive, with its trademark character, camaraderie and club-like atmosphere with the added benefits of the Festival’s retro-inspired Velo Village, including:
All that’s great about both events on a single day and for a single entry price!
The event is organised in partnership with Verulam CC who are the official founders of the Chiltern 100 Sportive. Based in St Albans, they are one of the oldest and most active cycling sport clubs in Hertfordshire. Among its activities are club rides, youth development, training sessions (e.g. turbo, chain-gang), road racing and sportives and they recently announced their 2017 Verulam reallymoving.com Racing Team. As proud founders of the Chiltern 100, they have retained a close involvement with the event by manning the feed stations each year, continuing their commitment to delivering a leading cycling sportive, organised by cyclists for cyclists.
Cycletta and the Amersham Classic also form part of the Chiltern 100 Cycling Festival.
