The Howler

22nd September 2019 – Now Open

The Howler

With the option of 90 km and 125 km cycling routes, riders will travel across the stunning countryside of Aylesbury Vale and onto the Chiltern Hills, then back again via South Oxfordshire.

Quiet back roads, beautiful scenery and some really challenging climbs. Your lungs and thighs will ‘Howl’ - guaranteed! British Cycling’s own rating struggles with our challenging landscape and routes, so if in doubt, register for the 90km course

We unfortunately do not make refunds, however riders are able to transfer their entry to another rider by emailing us at Adult riders can also freely switch between the 125 km and 90 km routes, due to injury, lack of training or if added enthusiasm kicks in before the event!
