The 80 mile route heads deep into the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and features 3 significant climbs: the Col de Aston Hill, a longer climb with gentle alpine gradients; the Côte de Dudley Lane, a short but sharp climb with ramps of over 10%; and the Col de Pishill, another long but gradual climb. With just under 4,000 feet of climbing and two well-stocked feed stations, it's a perfect challenge for the more experienced rider.

The 50 mile route is rolling until you reach the Chilterns, allowing you to keep your speed up - especially when riding in a group. After the feed station in Lewknor, you dip into the Chilterns with Col de Aston Hill - at just under 3km long and with an average gradient of 4.4%, this climb is reminiscent of climbs on the continent due to its sweeping curves and gentle gradients. Coming down Watlington Hill, it's only 14 fast miles to the finish at the Rugby Club in Oxford. This route would be perfect for someone stepping up to longer rides for the first time.

The 25 mile route follows a gently rolling course over scenic terrain, which takes in tranquil Oxford villages such as Charlton-on-Otmoor and Horton-cum-Studley. With just over 1,000 feet of climbing this route would be ideal for someone looking to enter their first sportive, or for someone who wanted to introduce their partner or children to cycling.
