The end of the day...

The ride is all about sponsorship, and this year’s winners for raising the most sponsorship were Charlotte Hall, raising an amazing £170 to take the Juniors prize:

Things to bring with you to the ride


Getting to the ride

The ride starts and finishes at Brightwell Park, Nr Watlington, Oxon. Click here for Streetmap, or here for Google maps, or add OX49 5NP to your SatNav. Click here to download a printable map. Much of the ride is on private land, by kind permission of farmers and landowners, and the ride start and parking are in Brightwell Baldwin village by kind permission of the Nixey family.


Walking the course

The course will be open for inspection on Saturday September 30th, from 2pm.

The course is 12 miles long, so you may not have time to walk all the way round, but the majority of the jumps are concentrated in four areas, and are quite close to roads - please visit as many as you can, so you know what to expect on the ride. Ordnance Survey map Explorer 171, Chiltern Hills West, covers all of the course.
