White Horse Ridge CX
Promoted by: CX Sportive
Summary: The Ridgeway; it’s Europe’s oldest highway, used continuously for over 5,000 years. And it also happens to be a ribbon of near perfect riding for CX and gravel bikes!
Based at Chilton right at the foot of the Ridgeway, the White Horse Ridge CX is all about the terrain! Unlike most of the CX Sportive events, which chop and change between road and tracks, the White Horse Ridge is 95% off road. The Ridgeway mixes mile upon mile of grass, gravel, dirt and chalk track, riding high above sweeping views of the Oxfordshire plain.
The terrain is perfect for CX. Flowing enough to tempt you to up the pace, with just enough lumps and bumps to test your stamina when you get there. The surface changes mean there’s always something new just up the track and the scenery is a constant inspiration.
Fees: From £29
