About us

After the huge success of Ride Chartridge in 2016 – Chesham’s annual cycling sportive – the 2017 edition will take place on Sunday 7th May.

The event will once again be hosted by Chartridge Primary School.

There are three routes: 30 miles, 60 miles and 75 miles. All our rides provide an excellent way to enjoy the local scenery, meet new riders and raise money for the school. With over 500 riders signing up in 2016, £5000 was raised for the school and the team of parents organising the event hope to beat that total in 2017.

There will also be a short Family Ride.

Everyone who takes part can look forward to a clearly signed route, a well-stocked lunch stop, a text-based timing service, event photographs and a goody-bag.

The school will again host a kids’ festival on the day, which will include many different activities for everybody to take part in.

    The ‘Red Run’ is a relaxed and entertaining ride that will suit all abilities and can be ridden on mountain bikes or hybrids – so no need to rush out and buy an expensive new road bike, (unless you so desire!). This route will be hilly and provides a fantastic introduction to sportive-riding.

    1,660 feet of climbing

  • The Black Run
    100km | Adults: £25.00

    The ‘Black Run’ is a dramatic ‘modern-century’ through the Chiltern hills. This route will provide the best experience for riders on road-bikes of mixed abilities. An excellent challenge that most riders will be able to achieve providing they put in regular training. This will be a great opportunity to test yourself.

    3000 feet of climbing

  • The Black Run EXTRA
    120km | Adults: £25.00

    BlackExtraProfileNOTEXT

    The ‘extra’ miles are back in 2017. This route is aimed at experienced cyclists who are looking for an early season leg-stretcher. It will also be a great test for our Black Run riders from last year – especially the ones looking to test their stamina! It is a 75 mile route with plenty of hills and some beautiful views.
