The Summit Sixty-Five – One Event. Three Great Rides.
The Summit Sixty-Five in miles or km – you decide! The Summit Sixty-Five offers three cracking route options for all ability levels - 65 miles, 65km/40miles or 15 miles. The 15 mile ride is perfect for active fun and family riders. Qualified coaches will be running an accompanied Summit/British Cycling Go Ride for youth MTB riders aged 10-16 over this short route. By contrast the 65 mile long route is a serious challenge for experienced off-road cyclists!
Best Trails and Scenery in South East England
The Chilterns is a stunningly beautiful and unspoilt part of the country. The carefully planned Summit Sixty-Five routes include the area’s best woodland and tree-lined singletrack, linking classic Chiltern byways, bridleways and quiet country lanes. The long route also includes part of the infamous Ridgeway National Trail.
