16Marlow. This is a superb middle-distance ride. It's like a mini-Henley experience. Great if you're adding length to your rides (and a couple of climbs).komoot

13Wendover A favourite for the mid-week pros, and a favourite for the weekenders. A typical "lumpy" Chiltern ride. This is a superb "transitional ride" if you're stepping up from Saturday rides. It's made for Tempo riders.GPX filerideWithGPS Komoot  Whitewaters Deli
20Offley Oooh, it's a new venue. How exciting. We're off to Offley to check out The Barn. We're keeping the route to a seasonal 95km (60 miles) or so, to appeal to the whole club.GPX file Komoot  rideWithGPS   The Barn 95 km, 60 miles
27Dunstable Downs One of the best viewpoints on the Chilterns. You could see Scotland, were it not for the curvature of the earth, perhaps. Yet it's very accessible; how do they do that?GPX file Komoot  rideWithGPS NT Cafe
