Event description
Looking for a weekend escape with good friends? Or a solo adventure making new ones? Follow the red fox on an "Escape the City" two day ride in the country.

'Escape The City to the Chiltern Hills' is a cycle ride with a twist. Though cycling is our first love, we think the Chiltern Hills are best explored through a combination of pedal and foot. So, if you love walking and cycling in near equal measure, this is the escape for you. 
 We'll enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding landscapes from Coombe Hill, one of the highest points in Buckinghamshire, sample fine local produce in the pop up yurt at the Wild Strawberry Cafe and camp out under the stars in a hidden woodland campsite.
