Enjoy a great Summer's day cycling from London through the Chilterns to Oxford to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre.
Starting from beautiful Syon Park in Brentford, we first visit Fulmer and Burnham Beeches before stopping for lunch by the river at Marlow. The route then climbs into the Chiltern Hills and crosses Christmas Common with a stop at Chalgrove before heading to the Finish at Oxpens Meadows, on the banks of the Thames, in the heart of Oxford. There you'll enjoy live music, refreshments and a well-earned drink in the beer tent!
