 Howler 2018 – 23rd September – Cancelled


Back this year with both 90 and 125 km routes taking riders across the stunning countryside of Aylesbury Vale onto the Chiltern Hills and back again via South Oxfordshire. Quiet back roads, beautiful scenery and challenging climbs.

Your lungs and thighs will ‘Howl’ – Guaranteed.

British Cycling’s own rating struggles with our landscape and this years Epic route is the toughest we’ve ever planned. If in doubt register for the 90km course.
