In 2019 we have a brand new route. As much as we would like to have kept our much-loved route starting and finishing on Vandyke Road and including the infamous Shenley Hill, due to planning developments around that area we have taken the decision that holding a race and closing the road would just not be safe or viable in future years.
Instead, we have worked hard to find the route below, with race HQ at Ascott House, which is a National Trust property. The route takes in the villages of Mentmore and Ledburn as well as passing through Lower Ascott. You still get some great views and we’re hoping it will still be just as loved as the previous route. Below is an OS map showing the route and there is an online version linked below that:
