The stunning setting

This route through an area of outstanding natural beauty follows the Chiltern Way, the historic Ridgeway trail which is one of the oldest roads in England, and the ancient Icknield Way. The full 100km route starts and finishes in Henley via Princes Risborough the half way base camp. Or choose the 50km or 25km options.
