Sunday ride to Turville Heath and Lacey Green

Sunday, 19 August 2018 - 9:00am

Main details

Heading out to the Chilterns with coffee at the car-free Barn at Turville Heath, lunch near Princes Risborough and the Phoenix Trail on the way home. Very hilly to lunch (includes one of the Chilterns steepest). Nice and easy thereafter.

Ride report

Twenty one riders remembered the earlier start and 11 went on to lunch, tackling SmallDean Lane on the way. Our Garmins were registering 20% for some short sections and those with heavy bikes and no low gears had to push some of the way. A couple of superb descents after lunch made up for it.
