|Oct 2||Harpenden. A pleasantly lumpy ride to one of our favourite watering holes.||gpx file
|Brew & Cru||56 miles, 90km.|
|9||Haddenham. We cross the Chiltern Hills, take in some of the flat lands beyond, have a nice lunch amongst the flowers, then make our back again.||GPX file
|16||Marlow. 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
|23||Windsor. A relatively flattish ride South of the Chilterns, including a run along "Museeuw Lane" before lunching at the ever popular Cinnamon Cafe.||GPX file
|30||Great Missenden. A casual make-up-your-own-route ride offering plenty of opportunities for loops, or just a forty mile ride.||Matilda's|
|Nov 6||Wargrave. The last long-ish ride, with optional turn-arounds at Beaconsfield and Marlow.||ridewithgps komoot gpx file||H'Artisan|
|13||Wendover 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|
|20||Offley 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|
|27||Dunstable 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|
