Look ahead to summer as entries open for Chiltern 100 Cycling Festival 

Set yourself a summer cycling goal at the ultimate cyclists day out

Whilst the January days might still be cold and grey, cyclists are starting to look ahead to their summer cycling challenge. The Chiltern 100 Cycling Festival; a tough sportive and vintage cycling festival; is the ultimate celebration of cycling. With entries now open, riders can set this as a training goal to motivate them through the darkest months of the year.

The Chiltern 100 Cycling Festival takes place on Sunday 15 July at Penn House country estate, near Amersham, just one hour from London.

The Chiltern 100 Cycling Festival takes place on Sunday 15 July at Penn House country estate, near Amersham, just one hour from London. The 161km Gran Fondo is famed for its 21 gruelling hills, including the infamous climbs of ‘Wardrobes’ and ‘Whiteleaf’. With two shorter distances on offer (125km and 52km) the Chiltern 100 Sportive ensures that cyclists of all levels can enjoy the spectacular riding within the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The new event website features detailed route maps and a fresh brand look and feel, reflecting developments to an event long established as a firm favourite in the UK sportive calendar.

Combining the testing Chiltern 100 Sportive with cycling-themed stalls and entertainment in the retro-inspired Velo Village, the Chiltern 100 Cycling Festival offers a full family day out, with something for everyone. Riders can relax on the expansive lawns of Penn House, and enjoy food, craft beers and live coverage of Stage 9 of Le Tour de France on the giant outdoor screen. Arguably the most highly anticipated Stage of Le Tour de France 2018, the Arras to Roubaix route takes in 15 cobbled sections.

As well as the free glass of bubbles and bespoke finishers medal, those opting for the VIP Pave Package will enjoy a bike wash, unique Castelli event jersey and premium seats for Le Tour de France screening.

Nick Rusling, CEO of event organisers Human Race, says; “We are excited to be building on an event that is already so well received. This is the perfect day summers day out for cyclists and their families and probably the best place outside of France to enjoy Le Tour. It’s a must-do for your 2018 diary.”
