About the event
Returning for a seventh summer of promoting fun and fitness on two wheels, Cycletta will this year be incorporated into some of the UK’s most highly-regarded sportives for the first time. As more and more women have taken to their bikes over the course of Cycletta’s lifespan, demand has shifted away from introductory-style rides to more challenging courses, which is why we have chosen to incorporate women only waves into our prestigious series of cycling events.
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:
