It's downhill all the way from here! So if you're keen to explore more that the beautiful countryside has to offer - or if you're building up to your next epic challenge later this year Wild Cycles' Winter - Spring '22 series of guided rides is just the ticket.

Day adventures

We've just launched a load of new jaw-droppingly-beautiful day adventures which take in some of the area's spectacular scenery, sublime forest, gravel, riverside and ridgeway trails. A mere 30 miles out of London - you'll be blown away by the varied off-road terrain and stunning scenery.

Build confidence on wild guided rides

Guided rides last 3-4 hours. Routes are specially designed by our route maestros to maximise your riding pleasure and ensure a totally memorable experience. Led by one of our guides - ride out through the picture-perfect village of Aldbury before ramping up and into the stunning Ashridge Estate. The National Trust’s 5,000 acre estate with its ancient trees, rolling chalk and lush meadows supports a rich variety of wildlife including fallow deer and unforgettable bluebell carpets in spring. Other highlights include the Ashridge Manor House and the Bridgewater Monument. Sweeping gravel trails whisk you along tree-lined lanes before popping out at Ivinghoe Beacon - the Eastern tip of the Ridgeway - providing 360 degree views across Aylesbury Vale. With a perfect blend of endless sweeping forest trails - you'll be treated to some of the Chilterns’ best off-road biking.

Rides have all the ingredients guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Swing onto country lanes, cut through forest trails, across valleys and up on to ridgeways. Drop down to the picturesque Grand Union Canal to pick up the towpath and sweep through the Marsden Reservoirs bird sanctuary and onto some of the most sublime gravel the Chilterns has to offer. Never more than 30 miles from London you'll be amazed by what you'll see and discover on your doorstep.
