Riding with The Chiltern Society

The Chiltern Hills are an area of outstanding natural beauty stretching from Hitchin in north Hertfordshire to Goring-on-Thames in south Oxfordshire. The area is bounded on the south by the river Thames. The countryside is renowned for its sweeping chalk grasslands and wild flowers, its magnificent beech-woods, sparkling chalk streams, deeply wooded valleys, and quiet lanes ideal for cycling.

They have over 50 current members of their ‘Easy-Rider’ Thursday group as well as over 20 members for the speedier Monday ‘Road’ group and the Tuesday ‘Off-Road’ group.

“We are a disparate mix of Lawyers, Doctors, Surgeons, Engineers, Housewives and Wood-turners but we enjoy each other’s company and most of all cycling in the beautiful Chiltern Hills.”

They normally cycle from 10.30 to 1pm and then stop for lunch at a local pub – they have built up an impressive list of preferred eating places in the Chilterns.  The Easy Riders normally cycle between 20-25 miles before lunch where they sort out all the current affairs of the world.
